Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars

All I had to do was the type the title, and I went and grabbed another one.  You guys, seriously, these are amazeballs.

My daughter in law and I have been doing craft shows nearly every weekend.  WELL, 2 weekends ago we happened to be set up straight across from the bake sale people.  Whhaattt?  She brought two of these over and I went to a place so happy in my mind, I had to go home and figure it out, find a recipe, find a place to buy them or better yet, track down the nun who made them and beg for her recipe.  Well, none of those things really happened, but, I did find a couple of recipes online.  I tried them and neither were just the way "the ones" were at the bake sale.  So I started combining, adding, taking away, dancing the Na' Na' in between and it all just seemed to be the perfect mix.  So I baked them up, they looked and SMELLED perfect, I let them cool 10 minuted and waited for that glorious moment I was going to have another one of these in my chops and BAM.........not done all the way.  WHAT?  What kind of cook, someone who has been food blogging for 5 years, makes THIS kind of mistake?  Me.  So, I just looked at them, like, like a dog who ate a 20.00 steak off of the counter.  I threw them in the fridge, after all, almost raw dough is good to, and started again.  This time, was going to be different, I was going to bake them longer, and let them sit a bit longer, and waaaaaa-laaaaa!  Here is what I got!  I love the texture of these, which you might find a bit, almost "creamy" but not.  Cookie like but not.  Oh, just make them.  They are indescribable!

I think these would be an awesome addition to your table of holiday desserts, or just a nice snack to have sitting around the house so you can  wait for your next physical appointment and find out you have gained 5 lbs since April and then come home and eat more all the while............OMG...........sorry, small tangent there.

Here is what you need for these undeniably sweet treats!

2 2/3 cups of all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
2 eggs
3 T. granulated sugar
3 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease your 9x13 baking pan.  In a bowl mix together flour, bakng powder, and salt.  Set aside.  In a mixer bowl or a larger bowl cream together butter and sugar until smooth.  Add in eggs and whisk to combine.  Add this mixture to your flour mixture, or, as it may be your flour mixture to THIS mixture and mix until combined.  Pour into your baking pan and spread out evenly.

Now mix together your sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle liberally over the top.  Do it from high above, make it RAIN my friends!

This is the important part.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.  DO THE TOOTHPICK TEST on the center.  I can't deny that chilled half cooked cookie dough isn't delicious, but, shoot for the moon, and cook it all the way!

Much love to you all.  I sometimes forget to thank you often enough for your support, not just here on my website, but my social media as well.  Your kind emails, your recipe requests, I do my best to return them all!  I am forever grateful for all of you, my friends
