Snickerdoodle Bars

I LOVE Snickerdoodles and was super excited when my new SIL made some Snickerdoodle Bars for Easter. The hubby was even more excited! He said they were just the right amount of sweet.

Well, I asked if she would share the recipe and she was happy to do so. I hope you like them as much as we did…

Snickerdoodle Bars - yes, please!!

They look DELISH, don’t they?

Here is the recipe…

    These look delish!! There is nothing more yummy than a snickerdoodle cookie (in my humble opinion) but the ease of making them in bars, love!

    I would really like to make these but I can’t seem to find the recipe. Can you help me out? It’s not showing up on the page…or it could be user error.

    I made this recipe tonight and the bars are SO good! I used melted butter, which is my trick to make any bar recipe I make really gooey — a favorite in my household. These were a hit and I’ll be making them again. :)

      YAY!!! So glad. I love to hear that a recipe was a success and a hit!! Thanks for leaving the comment! Have a great weekend! 😀

    Is there a way to adjust the Snickerdoodle Bread, Cookie and Bar recipes for diabetics? My daughters boyfriend and grandmother are both diabetic and would not be able to enjoy these and no one should have to miss out on the joy of Snickerdoodles

    Do these tasted different than regular Snickerdoodle cookies since I make Snickerdoodles with Cream of Tartar and not baking powder. Just curious, they look really good just wondering about the difference. Thanks

    • 35

      Most Snickerdoodle recipes do include cream of tartar and these do taste a little different since they are bars but they still have that cinnamon/sugar delicious-ness!

    OMG. These were delicious! check out my most recent blog post about it :) Thanks for sharing!
