Snickerdoodle Bars

Soft, chewy, just the right amount of sugar AND made from things that are usually sitting in my pantry...Snickerdoodle Bars are a treasure!

I first came across this recipe for my sister's wedding reception. 
Her husband isn't a huge fan of frosting but loves a good cinnamon dessert and 
we wanted to make sure the spread included something delicious for him.

 For the reception, we cut them into squares, placed them in fun cupcake wrappers, 
and served them from a painted wooden tray- easy, cute, & a HUGE hit.

If you like a good snicker-doodle, I promise, you will LOVE this!

5 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  4 teaspoons baking powder
  1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  4 cups packed brown sugar
  2 cups butter, at room temperature
  4 eggs, at room temperature
 4 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup white sugar
  4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Lightly grease your big cookie sheet.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. 
In a separate bowl (I used my Bosch) beat together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Gently stir in the flour mixture until just incorporated. 
Spread evenly in the prepared pan. 
Combine your sugar and cinnamon in a little bowl. 
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the top of the batter.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until surface springs back when gently pressed. 
Cool slightly. 
Cut into bars with a plastic knife 

After eating one of these bars out of the oven yesterday, 
I decided next time we need to top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
