Day 224:Snicker Doodle Bars

As if we didn't have enough treats yesterday with 2 birthdays, we had these bars too!  My kids wanted to make me a treat for my birthday all by themselves.  I found them this recipe that was easy enough that my little ones could help.  I found this recipe here.

Snicker Doodle Bars
12" dutch oven

2 1/3 c. all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. butter, softened
1 1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Cinnamon Filling

1 Tbs. sugar
1 Tbs. cinnamon


1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1-2 Tbs. milk

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Beat in the sugars until fully incorporated. Then beat in the eggs, one at a time until fully incorporated. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients.

Spread half of the batter on the bottom of a greased dutch oven. Mix together the cinnamon filling ingredients and sprinkle evenly over the batter in the pan. Dollop the remaining batter in teaspoonfuls over the cinnamon filling. Don't worry about it not completely covering the filling- everything will spread out in the oven and have a great marbled look.

Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely then mix together the glaze ingredients (adding more milk if it's too thick- or more sugar if it's too thin) and drizzle over the top of the bars.

The Finished Product

The Review

Snicker doodles are one of my kids favorite cookies.  I hate making them because its a pain to roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.  These solve that problem nicely.  They were easy and yummy!  Everyone loved them and they'll replace regular snicker doodles at my house.  We gave these an A.
