Gooey Snickerdoole Bars {Secret Recipe Club}

It’s the third Monday of the month.  You know what that means.  It’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day.  Yeah!  I love this day!  Call me a dork but I look forward to this day all month.  It’s fun.  It brings me joy.  Don’t judge.

My blog assignment this month was Julie’s Eats & Treats.  With a blog name like that, I knew I would have no trouble finding one (or twelve) recipes that I wanted to try!
There were so many recipes that I wanted to try, like the Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars or the  Meatball Bubble Biscuits.  Everything looked so good and it was so hard to chose.  But then I saw the Gooey Snickerdoodle Bars and knew my kids would love these!
Gooey Snickerdoodle Bars
2 1/2 c  flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 c. butter, room temperature
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar, slightly packed
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Cinnamon Sugar Filling
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/4 c. powdered sugar
3 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9×13 pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
My kids love baking with me.  I think I love it more than they do, but either way, it’s a win-win.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter for 30 seconds until light and fluffy. Mix in the sugars and continue creaming until light and fluffy. Scrape down the bowl and add the eggs and vanilla. Beat for 1-2 minutes. On a low speed slowly mix in the dry ingredients.
Spread half of the batter in the bottom of the pan. Combine the sugar and cinnamon for the cinnamon sugar and sprinkle over the batter.
Take a small spoon (I used my small scoop for this) and drop the remaining batter evenly over the cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Let cool completely, about an hour. Whisk together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla for the glaze. Drizzle over the bars.

As the glaze soaks into the bars they transform from a cookie bar into a gooey, delicious, soft Snickerdoodle bar.  Amazing!

They are kind of a cross between a Snickerdoodle and a Cinnamon Roll.  They are a Snicker Roll… or a Cinnamon Doodle.  You decide.  But man oh man.  I can’t even tell you how amazingly delicious they are.

  4. Ohhh, took me right back to my grandmother’s kitchen!

  5. Besides the brilliance of having “gooey” and “snickerdoodles” go together, I always have these ingredients on hand and will need to whip up a batch pronto!

  6. Yum! I made your toffee cheesecake brownies for today’s reveal and they were scrumptuous!

  9. These look sooo good! My husband loves snickerdoodles, and I know these bars would be a huge hit in our house.

  10. Being an English girl, I never grew up with the name ‘snicker doodle’ in my vocabulary. I love it though, I haven’t a clue what it means. I am going to be brave and attempt a vegan and gluten free version of your bar. It looks so lovely. Does it crumble when you bite into it? It reminds me of a bakewell tart.
