These snickerdoodle bars are one of the many recipes I enjoy making during FALL.

There’s something about the FRAGRANCE of cinnamon and nutmeg filling up the kitchen that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Snickerdoodle Bars Recipe

Some people like to call them snickerdoodle blondie bars OR snickerdoodle cookie bars.

Honestly, I don’t really know the difference and regardless of the name, they all taste the SAME.

They are SOFT and CHEWY and have a crispy sugary top that’s irresistible!

I know many people like to make snickerdoodle bars from cookie mix or cake mix BUT they are just not as flavorful as these bars from SCRATCH.

Try them once and I promise you will fall in love!

Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodle Bars Recipe

Here are some TIPS for making perfect snickerdoodle bars:

  • Eggs and butter must be at room temperature so they blend together properly.
  • You must use unsalted butter since salted butter would make these bars very salty.
  • Don’t replace butter with margarine or oil since that will drastically affect this recipe.
  • DON’T skip the cream of tartar since it gives these bars a nice texture.
  • Don’t replace powdered sugar with granulated sugar or vice vera. You need to use both types of sugars in the batter to give the best texture.
  • Stir 1/2 cup cinnamon chips or white chocolate chips  into the batter to make them even more delicious.
  • Enjoy these bars as is OR drizzle them with a simple glaze or caramel sauce or even American buttercream frosting.
  • The batter will be thick but please DON’T over-mix!
  • To make snickerdoodle cream cheese bars or snickerdoodle cheesecake bars, top these bars with cream cheese frosting.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature (without any frosting, syrups or glazes) for up to 3 days.
