New & Improved Recipe!! 3/28/19
(Plus an easy recipe to make your own Cinnamon Baking Chips!)
I’ve been wanting to update this recipe for a while – I’m super excited about the new version!! – the new Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Bars were a hit with everyone who tasted them! They bake up in your standard 13 x 9 x 2 – inch pan and I added a little drizzle of glaze to dress them up! The taste is even better than the original recipe!
Here’s How the Recipe Started:
I’m sure you know how this goes…
“Mom, I need to bring a _______ to _______ tomorrow! Can we make something?”
Whenever this happens, I always think first to make brownies or bar cookies. They are easy to mix together, spread in the pan, bake and cut.
So I asked my daughter Sam what kind of bar cookie we should make. She suggested a snickerdoodle bar cookie! Hmm, I’d never thought of making snickerdoodles in bar form. Sounds like a delicious idea! We started with my Mom’s yellowed and torn Snicker Doodles Recipe Card…
My Mom’s “Snicker Doodles” Recipe Card:
Updates in Italics: We found my Mom’s old Snickerdoodle recipe and adjusted the amounts to fit a
half-sheet rimmed baking sheet 13 x 9 x 2″ baking pan. To amplify the cinnamon flavor, we decided to add cinnamon chips. We divided the dough, spread half in the pan, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and dolloped on the rest of the dough before they were baked to mimic how snicker doodle cookies are rolled in cinnamon sugar. They puffed up, coming precariously close to the edge of the pan, before they flattened out. (Now the batter amount is adjusted and fits perfectly in a 13 x 9 x 2″ pan!) We let them cool, then cut them into 48 24 squares. My tasting panel, Sam, her friend Grace and my other daughter Lauren, gave them a unanimous two thumbs up! They make a great dessert and are delicious with your morning coffee too! We hope you will love them too!
I’ve tried 3 Different types of Cinnamon Chips in this Recipe:
- Homemade Cinnamon Baking Chips! So easy & delicious! Why haven’t I made these sooner!
- King Arthur Flour had discontinued their long favorite mini cinnamon chips. The new Cinnamon Sweet Bits are the replacement – I hear they are very good. I just ordered some to try them out. I do like the ingredient list on these cinnamon bits (real cinnamon!)
- The Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips are very handy as they are available at many grocery stores.
