A classic snickerdoodle cookie in bar form.
Servings: 16 bars
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 cups flour
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a 9x13 pan by greasing or lining with parchment or wax paper.
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and mix well.
Add vanilla, cream of tartar, salt, and soda and mix well. Add flour and mix just until combined. Mixture should be dry and crumbly.
Press dough into prepared pan. It will have an uneven top, but if you prefer it to be very flat, you can use a spatula or wooden spoon to press the dough flat.
Mix sugar and cinnamon topping in a bowl or shaker. Sprinkle a generous amount over the top of the dough.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool before cutting into 16 long or 20 square bars.
