Snickerdoodle Cookie Bar Ingredients
- Fats: Softened Butter
- Dry Ingredients: All Purpose Flour, Granulated Sugar, Baking Soda, Cream of Tartar, Cinnamon
- Eggs and Vanilla Extract
How to make Snickerdoodle Bars
Preheat oven to 375 Degrees and make sure to use softened butter and eggs that are room temperature. I find allowing butter to sit on the counter with the eggs for 1 hour is plenty.
In a large bowl using a hand mixer cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. About 2-3 minutes. Scape sides of bowl as needed.
Add eggs one at a time and Vanilla Extract and continue to cream mixture together for an additional 2-3 minutes.
In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients of All Purpose Flour, Baking Soda, and Cream of Tartar together and gradually add the flour and dry ingredients to butter mixture.
Spread cookie dough evenly in a well greased or parchment paper lined 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a separate small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon and mix together. Depending on how much cinnamon you like used 1 ½ teaspoons - 2 teaspoons to ½ cup granulated sugar.
Sprinkle mixture on top of cookie dough before baking.
Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Insert toothpick in center making sure center comes out clean.
Allow to completely cool before cutting.
Store cooled bars in a sealed container or ZipLoc bag for up to a week. Bar Cookies are best if consumed in 2-4 days.
Storing and Freezing
Store bar cookies in a sealed contained or ZipLoc bag for up to 1 week. Cookie Bars are best enjoyed within 2-4 days.
Freezing. Wrap bars in plastic wrap and then store in a sealed container or ZipLoc bag before freezing. Bars will stay fresh up to 3 months.
Pro Baking Tips

Love Cinnamon? Add ¼-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the cookie dough mixture. You can amp up the cinnamon flavor. YUM!
