Reviews for Snickerdoodle Blondie Bars
"I think the 'test kitchen' needs to change the recipe to the way it was submitted. I used a 9x13 pan and couldn't imagine using a smaller pan, these were perfect. I did have to bake closer to 30mins but I think that's because I didn't smooth it completely so one side was a bit thicker."
"My husband's favorite cookie is the snickerdoodle. He thinks these bars are just as good as the cookies."
"Delicious and very easy. Used a 9x13 pan and baked 25 minutes. Moist with a great crumb. Cut into 16 pieces, could easily cut into 32."
"Amazing and so much easier to make than snickerdoodle cookies. I did what another reviewer did and used a 13x9" pan and baked for 25 minutes. YUMMY!!!!"
"Wish I had read all the reviews before making! These have a great flavor, but the main recipe needs to be changed to reflect baking in a larger pan. Mine sunk in the middle...as I was putting the batter in the pan I thought to myself there was too much batter and it was too thick for such a small pan."
"Fantastic! I too used a 9x13 pan and baked for 25 minutes, they came out perfect. I'm addicted!"
"Delicious bars that our whole family enjoyed. I doubled the recipe and baked them in a 9x13 pan and they were just right--a nice substantial bar that made a nice impression."
"Delicious! I mixed dark and light brown sugar and they were so yummy! Hubby and kid approved. I am not great at baking and this was super easy. Will definitely make again."
"I'm a stickler on making recipes as written the first time I make them, but I saw the comment from the author saying that the original recipe used a 9x13 pan. So I used that and baked for 25 min. Wonderful! Not incredibly moist, but not dry either. I'm not even a big snickerdoodle fan, and I can't stop eating these."
"These are great but next time I will use a 9x13 pan they are very thick when you use the 9" pan. They made my kitchen smell wonderful I will make them again and again a good to bar cookie"
