Snickerdoodle Bars

Snickerdoodle Bars - Rebekah and her Ramblings. The perfect fall cookie perfected in bar form and full of cinnamon sugar flavor!!Today is the first official day of fall. Apparently the Texas weather didn’t get the memo because I’m still wearing shorts and t-shirts. It’s unfortunate. But, I have decided to help the weather turn more fall like, I am going to bake fall food. What food is more fall-y than snickerdoodles?? Snickerdoodles are like the official cookie of autumn, and I prefer a good snickerdoodle over any kind of pumpkin flavored anything. These bars are the best kind of snickerdoodle around – firm yet extremely soft in the middle. Plus the dough is amazing AND the flavor of the bars themselves is sensational. Enjoy, and hope that the fall weather comes quickly!!
