Snickerdoodle Blondies

We've got a new favorite need-a-quick-sweet dessert in the house. Snickerdoodle Blondies.

YUM.


When I saw the recipe over on Heidi's blog, I immediately bookmarked it. They sounded just like something my husband would love.

Wasn't so sure about myself.

My grandma and mom used to make 'blondies' when I was young. Their blondies had a distinct butterscotch flavor, and I just wasn't a fan. I've made those blondies for my husband, though, and he loves them.

I couldn't quite figure out how butterscotch and snickerdoodles could combine, but I knew it would be no loss to me if I didn't care for Snickerdoodle Blondies. Less sweets, less me. ;-)

Well, so much for 'less me!' No butterscotch flavor exists in these bars. Think a giant snickerdoodle with a brownie texture.

YUM. Delish. So good. Mmmmm.

We love them! Thanks, Heidi!!


SNICKERDOODLE BLONDIES

2-2/3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt (I cut back to 1/2 tsp and still thought it was almost too salty)
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tablespoons sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside.

In another bowl, beat butter and brown sugar 3-5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in flour mixture and spread in a greased 9x13 baking dish.

Sprinkle combined sugar and cinnamon mixture over top and bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Do NOT overbake!

Cool, cut, and try not to eat them all. ;-)
