Super Yummy Snickerdoodle Bars Recipe combines a sweet buttery sugar cookie with warm cinnamon and vanilla. This bar is guaranteed to become a family favorite.
We have had so many cold and rainy days this Spring. The whole thing puts me in that nesting mode. I just want to spend my days baking and munching. And, no I don’t have any idea why my jeans are snug. So over the weekend, I thought about putting some cookies together and started searching the world wide web for inspiration. I made this Super Yummy Snickerdoodle Bars recipe sounded amazing.
I started backpedaling on the cookie idea once I landed on this recipe for Snickerdoodle Bars by My Baking Addition. I could very easily and quickly combine John’s love of Snickerdoodle cookies into a one-pan dessert. I love one-pan desserts because they are so easy to just pour into a pan and bake at once. Don’t get me wrong, I still love a good cookie but bars are so convenient and a real time saver.
The wonderful thing about these Snickerdoodle bars, besides being quick and easy, is that the ingredients are everything that I generally have on hand. The best thing about these cookie bars is their taste. They are like a soft buttery sugar cookie infused with cinnamon and warm vanilla and then topped with a creamy sugar glaze. They will become one of my go-to treats.

- 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
- 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
- 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350° degrees F. Spray the bottom of a 9X13 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and then line with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add in sugars and beat for an additional 2 minutes. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined. Turn the mixer to low and add the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
Spoon half of the batter into the pan and spread evenly. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the batter.
Spoon a teaspoon-sized amount of the remaining batter evenly over the pumpkin pie spice mixture.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the bars using a spoon or fork.
