My favorite cookie transformed into the BEST soft and chewy Snickerdoodle Bars! No rolling or chilling; these couldn’t be easier to make.

I can always count on my favorite cookie bar recipes when I’m looking for a quick and easy treat, and these Snickerdoodle Bars are way easier than regular snickerdoodle cookies, and just as delicious!

How to Make Snickerdoodle Bars:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cream together butter, shortening, and 1 ½ cups granulated sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt and stir until combined.
  • Lightly grease a 9×13” pan. Press the dough into an even layer on the bottom the pan.
  • In a small cup or bowl, mix the 1 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the top of the dough.
  • Bake for 22-26 minutes (don’t over bake!). Remove and allow to cool completely before cutting and serving.

Freezing Instructions: Freeze snickerdoodle bars for up to 3 months in a freezer-safe container. Bring to room temperature before eating.

    1. You can use butter but it will change the outcome a little. Lauren hasn’t tested coconut oil but other people (in the reviews) have used it successfully.
