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…

They look DELISH, don’t they?

Here is the recipe…

    1. Let me know if you do!! Wish you could have come up to SNAP this weekend. It would have been awesome to finally meet. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you, Barbara! I think you’ll love it too if you’re a Snickerdoodle fan. Let me know if you try it out. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. These look so yummy! Totally have to try them. I love snickerdoodles. I just had a snickerdoodle cupcake the other day, it was soooo good! I’m a new follower as well. Found you on the Tatertots and Jello weekend link party.

  2. 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!

    1. Thank you, Tanya!! Let me know if you try these out… they were quite delish! Have a great day! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. 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.


  4. 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 Iโ€™ll be making them again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. 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! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Made these tonight and my kids absolutely love em! My son said “Mom, it’s like eating a cinnamon roll cookie!” Thanks for the great recipes!!

  6. These were terrific! I made them at home and they were gone quickly. I have another batch in the oven now to take to work tomorrow!

  7. 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

  8. 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

    1. 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!

  9. 5 stars
    This recipe was great, I doubled it and baked in a sheet pan and it worked very well. I added some cream cheese to the icing and it was even better!!
