My favorite cookie recipe transformed into the BEST super soft and chewy snickerdoodle bars! No rolling or chilling the dough. These couldn’t be easier to make.
I have a serious sweet tooth problem when the weekend comes. Give me all the sweeeeets! Usually I want to relax on the weekends so I want a treat that’s easy, has simple ingredients so I don’t have to run to the store, and obviously a treat that’s delicious!
The dough for these cookie bars is just like snickerdoodle cookie dough. After you make it, you press it into the bottom of a 9×13” pan. Then sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top, and they’re ready to go in the oven.
These snickerdoodle bars fit the bill in every way. Easy? CHECK. Super simple ingredients you probably have in your pantry already? CHECK. The easiest, tastiest snickerdoodle cookie bars ever? Triple check.
If you are a fan of snickerdoodle cookies then you will LOVE these. Thick, soft and chewy and irresistible.
