Snickerdoodle Brownies

I love snickerdoodles.  I loved making them as a kid . . . maybe it was just being able to play with the dough and roll it into balls.  My kids loved them too, and they liked rolling them into balls.  Now that I don’t have any little kids to make all those little balls and roll them in cinnamon and sugar – I don’t think I’ve made snickerdoodles in years! {sigh}

Fortunately a friend sent me this recipe for snickerdoodle brownies – sounds intriguing doesn’t it!  Couldn’t resist, so I tried them- mmmm . . .  same great taste as snickerdoodle, but no rolling the dough into balls  {I’ll save that treat for when my grandkids visit}.

These were a hit at my house {love the added frosting on top}.  They cut well, and kept their shape, but most important, they taste amazing- perfect for any occasion!


Snickerdoodle Brownies


2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cinnamon Mixer:

1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon


1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.  In mixing bowl, blend together softened butter, light brown sugar, and sugar until blended.  Add one egg at a time, then add the vanilla.  Add the flour mixture and blend well.  Spoon half of the batter into the 9×13 pan and spread evenly.

Make the cinnamon mixture by combining one tablespoon sugar and one tablespoon cinnamon.  Sprinkle evenly on top of the batter.  Using the remaining batter, place teaspoon sized dollops on the top of the cinnamon mixture covering the pan.  You will be able to see some of the cinnamon mixture peeking through.  Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Remove from oven and let cool for one hour.  Combine the ingredients for the icing and drizzle it over the brownies.

  16. These were a huge hit at a recent picnic with both kids and adults. Super easy, quickly and delicious. What more could you want?!? (well, maybe some leftovers so I could have taken a few home!)

  17. I came across this the other week and had to try it never heard or tried anything like this before so I shared it on my blog with a link back to you here for people to try it on my side of the pond I went an put the UK measurements on my post about it.
    It’s definitely going to get made again soon for family this time.

  18. I saw these today, and had to make them! They’re currently in the oven. I’m planning on bringing them to a party tomorrow, would you recommend holding off on the icing until tomorrow?

  19. Larkin – sorry we were out of town and I’m sure you’ve already served the brownies! Hope you loved them (I would have gone ahead and put the icing on, but either way would work). 🙂 You’ll have to let us know how you liked them!! Have a great weekend!

  20. I made these for a BBQ today and they were a huge hit. It is a great recipe because I always have these ingredients in my pantry. I did dust my hands with flour to spread out the first half of the dough by hand into the pan. This helped me to get it evenly spread and into the pan’s corners.
