Snickerdoodles are a cookie that I would have never picked up as a child. And really, when push comes to shove, I can't say that next to a chocolate chip, it would ever be my first choice. But as an adult, with more exposure to the soft cinnamon cookie, I can  say that they are pretty freakin awesome.

The other night, I was headed over to a friends house and needed to make something on this quick as we were fighting a broken heater and time constraints. I had everything all out and ready to make these, and at the last second, I remembered, she hates cinnamon. So much for that plan. ;D

Lucky for me, blondies aren't too far off from this recipe, so with a few tweaks, I ended up making them. I stashed these simple snickerdoodle bars for Handsome and I to nibble on for another day.

    Oh I love snickerdoodle blondies! So much more than the actual cookie, and I agree as a child I don't have many memories of eating them as opposed to any other option (I was a huge sprinkle sugar cookie lover).

    Sweet cinnamon, these look amazing. I like my doodles with an extra splash of cinnamon-y goodness. Pinned.

    I have made snickerdoodle bars before and just loved them. Mine had walnuts and icing, but yours look just as delicious! I need to go grab one from my freezer 😉

    It's sweet. I'd love these. When I was little I never would have eaten snickerdoodles willingly but I know better now. 🙂 Tay loves cinnamon so I think I'll make her a little treat...
