Pinned It Made It Monday Week 18

This week's pin was one I wasn't so sure I was going to like, but it looked so good I wanted to give it a try.
Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars. Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookies and sometimes there are recipes out there that just ruin them, but this wasn't one of them.

I was needing a dessert to take to a funeral, so decided that would be a good time to make them. I ended up coming home with 1/2 pan as there were so many desserts and not many people at the dinner. That was okay, because then we got to enjoy them. If you like snickerdoodles, I highly recommend this recipe.

Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars
  • 1 cup butter or shortening (shortening gives a better texture)
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  1. Cream shortening and sugar.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl between eggs.
  3. Mix in sour cream.
  4. Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, baking powder and salt.
  5. Mix into shortening/sugar mixture.
  6. In a separate, small bowl, combine ⅓ cup sugar and cinnamon.
  7. Sprinkle half the cinnamon sugar mix into a 9X13 pan.
  8. Spread batter on top.
  9. Top with remaining sugar mixture.
  10. Bake 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
  11. You don't want this too much like cake, so opt for less time if you need to.
