Snickerdoodle Bars - these glazed treat bars are delicious and packed with cinnamon and sugar. We love this recipe!

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…

Snickerdoodle Bars

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.


    Lil' Luna

    It’s back. I had to edit it and it made it disappear. Sorry about that!


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. πŸ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    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! πŸ˜€

    Lil' Luna

    SO glad you liked them and the kids did too!! Hope you can come back for more craft and recipe inspiration. πŸ™‚


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!

    Lil' Luna

    LOVE hearing that Alice!! I hope your co-workers enjoy them tomorrow. πŸ™‚


Nice recipe. Thanks and Happy 4th!


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

    Lil' Luna

    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 πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

    Lil' Luna

    Hi Heather! Thank you so much for stopping by, and I’m so happy you liked the recipe. πŸ™‚
