Snickerdoodle Blondies

May 23, 2013Teresa

Snickerdoodle Blondies are awesome! Take some Snickerdoodle cookie dough, add some cinnamon chips and then glaze them with cinnamon icing.  It makes for one delicious recipe. All of us have heard of Snickerdoodles–those wonderful sugar cookies that are rolled in a cinnamon-sugar mixture and taste so delicious. Snickerdoodle Blondies is a brownie rendition of that amazing recipe.

You can add a cinnamon icing glaze, or not, as you prefer, but the blondie itself tastes just like regular Snickerdoodles, even though they are denser and even more sensational with the addition of cinnamon chips in the batter. I’m salivating already!

My husband wanted to take some goodies with him to give away to a few people on a recent business trip to Colorado, but his admonition to me was to make something like my Chunky Blond Brownies — in other words, nothing gooey or messy! So I quickly went to my Pinterest Board “Cookies and Brownies Obsession” to see what would work.

Not seeing what I wanted I went on a search. I came across these and these (which I’ve now pinned)! My first batch of this recipe was made without the glaze, because most of these goodies were going to be traveling via airplane. Subsequent versions included adding the glaze, a cinnamon-sugar mixture and additional cinnamon chips on top before baking.  Did these ever turn out fantastic!

Yes, this is a sugar high waiting to happen. Yes, Snickerdoodle Blondies are addicting. Yes, they smell heavenly and taste outrageous! And, yes, they met my prerequisite of not being too messy or sloppy! Not like my Luscious S’Mores Bars or my Paula Deen recipe for Black and White Cookie S’Mores where the marshmallow creme drools out of the middle. Even still, these amazing Snickerdoodle Blondies are worth making. If your family is fortunate enough to get any of these tasty treats they will be so thankful!

If you’re looking for a great tasting blondie recipe to whip up quickly, than Snickerdoodle Blondies is one to try. I’ve been cooking with cinnamon chips for a couple of years now and they make every cookie, every sweet bread, even cakes more delicious than without them. So, go ahead and get started on a batch of these goodies. You won’t be sorry….except when you come to the end of them and you have to start over!

When I initially posted this recipe in May 2013, it was right before I started taking food pictures with my Canon camera. While the pictures weren’t awful, they weren’t really sharp or clear either. So I’ve been busy for the past couple of years remaking all those first year blog recipes so I could get better pictures.

I recently remade this recipe (July 2016) for close friends who were moving. I gave them a batch of these goodies to take along as they travelled by car 1,200 miles from Texas to Florida. This time I decided to make it with the cinnamon glaze on top and I’m really glad I did. It was awesome with the glaze. She told me she was gobbling these treats down three at a time they were so good. 🙂 Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to make them that I don’t have all the preparation pictures that I usually take. But you can get a general idea of what I did.

Snickerdoodle Blondies are a spectacular dessert bar.

These blondies have a dense texture the way brownies are supposed to have. They’re not cake-like. The cinnamon chips in the batter and added on top make these blondies devastatingly rich and decadent! The glaze seals the deal! 🙂

I added cinnamon chips on top and sprinkled a cinnamon-sugar mixture over top of the blondies before baking.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients for the blondie.

Snickerdoodle Blondies | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen | This awesome #snickerdoodle #dessert is extra rich with the addition of #cinnamonchips & a #cinnamon glaze. We love them! #brownies

Soften butter, add brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, cream of tartar, and baking powder. Combine with an electric mixer until smooth. Add flour and 1 cup cinnamon chips. Spread into a greased 9×13″ baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon chips and cinnamon-nutmeg-sugar mixture. Bake at 350 about 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

For the glaze: Combine powdered sugar and cinnamon. Add vanilla and milk.

Whisk until you get the desired consistency.

After baking Snickerdoodle Blondies cool completely before adding cinnamon glaze. After glazing, allow blondies to set up about 15-20 minutes so that the glaze dries before cutting.

If you’ve never tried cinnamon chips in a recipe before you really need to try them. They are really sweet and greatly augment the cinnamon flavor in any recipe.

    Thanks for sharing your Snickerdoodle cheesecake bars. My youngest child loves snickerdoodle cookies and cheesecake. I’ve made him cookies and pies and now you have shared this recipe and the blondes. This will be something that I will make for his birthday. He’s never liked “birthday cake” , I’ve always had to do cheesecakes or pies for his birthdays. I know he will enjoy these…all in one…lol
    Thanks again.

      Hi Lisa. Whether you make the Snickerdoodle Blondies or the Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars, I think your son will be very pleased. I also have a Cinnamon Frosted Snickerdoodle Blondie that’s out of this world. You ought to check it out too. My husband has never been one for cake either. I always make cherry cheesecake for his birthday. 🙂

    The printable recipe includes the cream of tartar, but then is not listed in the instructions. I happen to catch that though while making them & added it. It’s obviously not a deal breaker, but just a little confusing. These are very good bars & I will definitely make them again. The two things I will alter are to increase the suggested amount of topping of sugar,cinnamon & nutmeg – mine pretty much baked into the dough & lessen the baking time. Of all my baking pans I don’t have a 9 x 13 glass pan. I used my Le Crueset cake pan & after 30 minutes the edges are more done than I like & don’t look like yours. They;re still tasty enough to eat!! Sue

      Hi, Sue. Thanks sooooooo much for letting me know about the cream of tartar. I’ve corrected the recipe. While you can bake this in a metal pan, it will cook differently than glass. I don’t know if you have any thrift shops near you, but you can usually find those old pyrex 9×13 baking dishes for a couple of dollars. I personally prefer baking in the white ceramic/porcelain/stoneware type dishes because of the way they cook. I’ve picked most of mine up at Ross very inexpensively. One other note, my oven tends to cook on the slow side. You may want to decrease your oven temperature a little even if the recipe takes longer to bake then the instructions call for. Hope you enjoy the recipe. It’s one of our favorites. Thanks again for letting me know the recipe error. Teresa

    I made these tonight and they are delightful! I skipped the little bit of topping right before putting them in the oven and I used white chocolate chips. They are still great so thank you for sharing. 🙂

      They are a marvelous cookie/cake/dessert baking item. You may be able to order them from Amazon.com. Not sure if they ship to Australia but you might check it out. They keep for a long time too. I’ve had my cinnamon chips for about 7-8 months (I bought about 15-20 bags). They are still fresh.
