The first time I ever had a snickerdoodle was in Home Ec 10 and it was the first time I was allowed to bake by myself. Each bite tasted like a little piece of accomplishment that had been rolled in cinnamon and sugar!
This recipe is a new take on the classic snickerdoodle. They are still chewy, crispy and covered in cinnamon and sugar but the perk is that these take about half the time to make. I found this recipe on cute blog called Rumbly In My Tumbly!!
1/2 cup un-salted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1 Tbsp sugar + 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Line 8 x 8 baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Cream together sugar and butter. Beat in salt, egg and vanilla. Slowly add in flour until well incorporated. Dough will be thick. Scrape into prepared pan and smooth until even.
Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small dish. Sprinkle evenly over the top of dough.
Bake for 30 mins. Let the bars cool before removing foil from the pan and cutting into bars.
