These moist and chewy snickerdoodle bars are not only easy, but are perfect for school lunches.
If you are looking for something to whip up quickly to put into school lunches, this is it. They are so simple that you can even get them baked before breakfast!
I tried that this morning, but only made half a batch. For the amount of people I wanted to share these with . . . that was not enough.
Easy Snickerdoodle Bars
If you are like me and tend to groan inside when I am forced to roll cookie dough balls in sugar toppings, then you will love this recipe! It does away with rolling each cookie in cinnamon sugar. Instead, you just sprinkle it on top of the whole sheet of cookie bars and call it done.
Seriously, you can have these mixed and in the pan within about 10 minutes. Unless, of course, you are running around trying to find ingredients.
I first found these on Back for Seconds, but decided it needed changed a bit to fit our family. This recipe will make a really full big-size cookie sheet. Which is perfect when you are feeding 6 kids! I like to put this in my 12 x 17 inch cookie sheet. *Note: if you have trouble with it going over the edges, you can put this in two 9×13 pans.
And to get that moist and chewy cookie bar texture – be sure to not overbake it! Watch it closely around the 25-minute mark and check with a toothpick. You want a slight “fudgy” texture. With just a few crumbs still hanging onto your toothpick.
