Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars

Hi there! It’s Kelly from Typically Simple and I have a super easy recipe to share with you all today! Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies…okay, let’s face, all cookies are my favorite. But I love the faint cinnamon and chewy goodness of Snickerdoodles.

The thing is, whenever we made Snickerdoodle cookies from scratch, they always turned rock hard a few days later. It was quite frustrating and even though I would have liked to, eating a few dozen cookies in two days just wasn’t going to happen. So I tried making Snickerdoodle cookie bars and they turned out perfect!


The ingredient list is simple – I had everything on hand for these. Great for when you need a last minute baked treat for a party or get together. And clean-up is minimal!

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar + 1 tsp ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350°
Coat an 8×8 baking pan with nonstick spray
Using an electric mixer, combine butter and sugar until light and fluffy
Beat in egg, salt, and vanilla until well combined
Add in flour and mix well, batter will be thick


Pour batter into 8×8 baking pan and spread out to make an even layer
Mix cinnamon and sugar, sprinkle all over the top of the dough
