Isn’t “snickerdoodle” a fun word? It’s even more fun when it comes out of the mouth of a two year old. “Stickernoodle.” “Stinkergoogle.” You get something different every time. I first spotted this recipe at My Baking Addiction a couple of months ago, and have whipped up a batch of chewy cinnamon-sugar deliciousness at least five times since. They are easy to make and even better than that – there’s a good chance you already have everything you need to make them! The only thing you’ll need to wait for is your butter to soften and your eggs to warm to room temperature.
Yield: 20-24 Bars
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter (room temperature)
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or line a 9×13″ pan.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together brown sugar and butter, beating for 3-5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, then vanilla, beat until smooth.
4. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended.
5. Use a lightly greased spatula (or your fingers) to spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan.
6. Combine the granulated sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter.
7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until until the surface springs back when gently pressed. Cool before cutting into bars.
