Easy Snickerdoodle Blondies

  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter, room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • Cinnamon topping:
  • 2 Tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  1. Combine the butter, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla. I used my mixer and it worked great!
  2. Add in the dry ingredients (flour and baking powder).
  3. Spread in a greased 9x13 inch pan. The batter will be thick almost like a cookie mixture.
  4. Combine the cinnamon topping ingredients and sprinkle over the top.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until top springs back when pressed. Once it cools, it will harden more.
