This recipe… You guys. I have been making this for YEARS so the big question is, why on earth has it taken me so long to share it?? These Snickerdoodle Blondies are a beautiful blend of cookies and brownies leaving you with the ultimate dessert recipe!
My very first snickerdoodle encounter was when I was around 5 or 6. We were at a gigantic family gathering and the food spread was AMAZING. It was one of those pot luck style where everyone brings a dish or two and line folding tables full of the goodies. I had already filled up on the main course when my mom leaned over and suggested we “scope out the treats.” Of course, I was more than thrilled to jump at the opportunity to fill my belly with a few of those goodies so we wondered to the table and my little eyes were filled with choices. I teetered between a slice of the most delicious looking chocolate cake I have ever seen and the frosting coated sugar cookies that were placed just in front of me. Luckily, my mom suggested I give the cinnamon covered version a try and I instantly fell in love.
But let’s be honest… Cookies will never EVER come close to replacing a dessert that is super close to my heart, BROWNIES. This recipe combines the two in a wonderful version. You can thank me after you give them a try. Say hello to your new go-to for every holiday event and be prepared to share the recipe!
