Snickerdoodle Squares

When autumn's chill arrives, my first thought is to turn on the oven and bake something delectable. Apple tart, pumpkin roll, sweet potato pie...and Snickerdoodles!

I fiddled with my Snickerdoodle cookie recipe, looking for a way to make it a one pan dessert that was both delicious and time-saving. I think I hit pay dirt on my first try.

While these 'blondie-type' squares baked, my house filled with the scent of warm, sweet cinnamon. The flavor was buttery and rich. These squares are wonderful! If you try the recipe, please stop back in and leave a comment.
