Snickerdoodle Blondies {Foodie Friday}


I try to pretty much stick to chocolate desserts, but every once in a while I try to break out of my little box and try something different. I have loved Snickerdoodle desserts in the past, so I figured this wasn't any different. Plus in my personal opinion anything with cinnamon on it can be considered breakfast food =) The nutmeg in this gives this a fall-ish feel, so you could certainly leave that out if you wish.

Snickerdoodle Blondies


Yield:
24 blondies

Ingredients:

2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup (8 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon



Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking pan; set aside.
2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl; set aside.
3. Beat together the butter and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, and then the vanilla. Beat, scraping the bowl, until thoroughly combined. On low speed, gradually add the flour mixture until just combined. Give the dough a final stir with a spatula or wooden spoon to make sure the flour is incorporated.
4. Spread the dough evenly into the pan (I found an offset spatula was the best tool for the job, as it's a thick batter). Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter.
5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the surface springs back when gently pressed. Cool completely before cutting. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
