What say we wrap up the week with Snickerdoodles? And, specifically, a recipe for Snickerdoodle Bars, meaning a batch of drool-worthy cookies can be yours with no scooping or rolling dough required!

I don’t know what it is about the humble combination of cinnamon and sugar that makes Snickerdoodle-esque treats so popular. Actually, yes…yes, I do. SNICKERDOODLE TREATS ARE DELICIOUS. Brown Buttter Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn is one of my family’s favorite movie-watching snacks. And my Snickerdoodle Mug Cake is one of the most popular recipes on the site, for good reason…it tastes freaking amazing and can be fork-to-mouth in just a few short of minutes!

So I figure it’s high time I add these moist, yummy Chewy Snickerdoodle Bars to the repertoire. Heck, maybe one day I’ll even add regular ol’ Snickerdoodle Cookies to the site! What can I say…I like to work backwards.

Back to these Snickerdoodle Bars, though. They are so good and so easy, y’all! Making Snickerdoodles in cookie form can be rather time-consuming, since each cookie has to be scooped and rolled in cinnamon sugar. But these brilliant bars? Simply mix up the batter, spread it into a pan (since it’s too thick to pour), sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (a heavy hand is encouraged), bake, and slice! Not quite as fast to make as that mug cake, mind you, but this recipe produces enough to share with 20 or so of your closest friends, so I’d consider that a good trade.

And the bars? Moist and chewy centers with a crunchy veneer of cinnamon sugar. Sweet but nicely spiced and with a slight tang from cream of tartar in the batter. In other words? Snickerdoodlicious!

Before I feel compelled to make up any additional submissions for urban dictionary consideration, I’ll let you get on to the recipe. Just promise me one thing, m’kay? The next time you want/need to bake a sweet treat for your family/neighbors/teachers/self, don’t miss the chance make this recipe! Because that, my friends, would be a snickerdoodletastrophe. 😉

    Hello! I just stumbled on your site today as I was searching “canita pizza with leftover pulled pork.” I think I’m in love! <3 I printed the pineapple pulled pork pizza and two other recipes (including this Snickerdoodle recipe) to try this week and over the weekend. Congratulations on the cookbook and I look forward to trying the recipes it contains. Thanks again and God bless.

    Snicker doodles just happen to be one of my biggest downfalls ever. I am flat on my back after an injury, but you better believe these bars will be one of the first recipies I will be making when I am able to stand again. That IS A FACT !! I can even smell them right now and wish I had one, or a complete 9 x 13…🤗
    Thank you for sharing one of my favorite desserts.
    God Bless You…😘

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Oh, Diana…I hope your back is feeling better and that you’ve healed from your injury! Either way, I hope you’ve been able to enjoy a whole pan of these Snickerdoodle Bars…it sounds like you definitely deserve it. 🙂
