Snickerdoodle Bars {Secret Recipe Club}

Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars

I’m still trying to get used to posting my Secret Recipe Club post on the first Monday of the month.  This is only my second month in group A and my brain just isn’t used to it yet.  March – bam!  Secret Recipe Club – bam!  Ahhhhh!

My blog assignment this month is BC Mom’s Kitchen.  Anna has been blogging for quite awhile, since 2007.  She blogs wonderful, easy recipes… exactly what I like!  Her blog has become her recipe book, so to speak.  It’s become her way of documenting (blogging) recipes that she loves so she always knows where they are.  Genius!

Who doesn’t love a delicious, cinnamon-y Snickerdoodle?!?!  They are one of my son’s favorite cookies, so, when I saw Anna’s Snickerdoodle Bars post, it was decided.

We’ve made Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars before but when I saw the pictures of Anna’s bars, I dang near drooled.

  1. How sweet and yummy!

  2. The first Monday of the month does tend to sneak up on you.

    I hope you enjoyed these. I almost made them this past weekend to take to a potluck but then decided on something else. NOW I really am going to have to make them. You’ve got me drooling.

  3. This is just my sort of recipe – Great choice and you did a fantastic job of the bake #secretrecipeclub

  4. Erin I LOVE that you “dang near drooled” when you first saw this recipe! – I did too when I saw your bars!!! I’m thinking I want to make a batch up ASAP just so I can stop all this drooling! 😉

  5. Snickerdoodles are not something we get over here in Australia so I’m always fascinated by them. these look amazing, and I’m sure your son loved every last one! 🙂

  6. My daughter would love these – she is a huge snickerdoodle fan too!

  7. Iced Snickerdoodle bars … they sound yummy and look lovely too!

    I was assigned BC Mom’s blog this past month, and almost made these snickerdoodle bars. Like, I started getting the ingredients out of my pantry. Instead, I made her rhubarb bread because I have a ridiculously huge patch of rhubarb in my yard and like to use it as much as possible, but I will definitely make the snickerdoodle bars sometime soon.

    Your snickerdoodle recipe is actually the one I use and my husband, who has a huge sweet tooth and has been undyingly loyal to chocolate chip cookies his entire life, actually thinks the snickerdoodles are a little better! My husband actually misremembered your blog name as “Making Memories with your Snickerdoodles” and that’s still what I think of it as being called, heh.

    So, weird coincidence time. My back is hurt and I’ve been spending a ton of time lying around on the computer. I like your posts and was casually scrolling my way through your blog. Was on page 7 and wondering idly when I’d be assigned your blog. Just got the blog assignment for June an hour or so ago, and guess whose blog I now have a reason to poke around on even more?!
