Snickerdoodle Blondies

            I've been going through blogging withdrawls! Blogger was down for a few days and I couldn't post or respond to other bloggers..hopefully no more problems :)

Snickerdoodles in blondie form rock on so many levels. I can't believe it took me months to make this recipe! If you are a true snickerdoodle fan like I am then you reallllly need to make these. They are soft,chewy, go perfect with a cup of coffee and the cinnamon sugar top crust is snickerdoodle perfection. I'm starting to learn that my husbands coworkers love all things cinnamon and sugar. They raved about these guys..so much so that I am going to surprise them with snickerdoodle cupcakes very soon!

Snickerdoodle Blondies

1-1/3 cups All-purpose flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Butter;softened
1 Egg
1/2 TBSP Vanilla Extract

Topping:


1 TBSP Sugar
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 or 180 celcius. Grease an 8x8 inch pan;set aside. In a bowl,combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; whisk and set aside.


In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat the butter and brown sugar together for 3 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Spread the batter evenly into pan..(the dough is almost like a cookie batter so you may need to use either a greased spatula or your hands)


Combine the topping ingredients and evenly sprinkle over the top of the batter. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted towards middle comes out clean. Cool in wire rack before cutting. ** Recipe can be doubled and baked in a 9x13 pan**


Yields: depends on how you cut the bars
