I really have no idea what I would do without my Cuisinart Electric Hand Mixer. Like, I actually don’t know what I would do without it. As much as I look forward to (hopefully) getting my KitchenAid stand mixer when we get married, I still love my electric hand mixer more than any other tool in the kitchen. I’m supersad that it has to get packed up this week to go on the truck, not to be seen again until we’re unpacked in Williamsburg! Le sigh.
Anyways, this recipe is another Pinterest find, scooped up very recently. When I saw the title of “Snickerdoodle Blondies,” I knew I would love it. The best part is that I actually had everything on hand to make them and the bonus is that it helped me use up some ingredients that we don’t need to take with us when we move. Hooray! These were pretty simple to throw together and I really wish I had thought the recipe up myself. Needless to say, I made these on Sunday and Will ate the last one this morning. Super yummy. I highly recommend these if you’re looking for something new to bake!
Cooking Notes: I used 1 tbsp brown sugar (because I needed to get rid of it), 1.5 tbsp white sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon for the topping. Otherwise, I mostly followed the instructions.
Snickerdoodle Blondies (adapted from My Own Sweet Thyme; serves 16)
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups packed brown sugar, plus 1 tbsp
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 tbsp white sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter, 2 cups brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla, until smooth. Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, continuing to beat until well blended. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
In a small bowl, combine 1 tbsp brown sugar, the white sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the batter in the baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the surface springs back when gently pressed. Remove from oven and let cool slightly on a wire rack. While still warm, cut into squares. Serve and enjoy!
