has been feeling a little left out, I have been making favorite cookies of
everyone else and not his.So today I
made cookies for him.One reason I did
not make them sooner is he will eat them all before Christmas even if I stick
them in the freezer so I was waiting until closer to Christmas so I wouldn’t
have to make them twice.The other
problem is he likes Snickerdoodles, cookies I had never even heard of until I
married him (there is no chocolate in them so they did not show up on my radar)
and Snickerdoodles are ROLLED cookies!!As I’ve mentioned before I detest making rolled cookies, that’s what my
daughters are for but it’s Wednesday and they are busy with school.So I decided to change things up a bit, still
make him Snickerdoodles (or at least a cookie that tastes like a Snickerdoodle)
but make it as a bar cookie.
I am all
about the bar cookie, great cookie taste without the tedious rolling or
scooping.Seriously if you are having a
cookie emergency, you know what I’m talking about, you MUST HAVE COOKIES but
you are pressed for time a bar cookie is the way to go.Mix, through them in a pan and usually in 30
minutes or less you are finished and have an amazing batch of cookies.
I admit I
tried the cookies and they are good (even if there is no chocolate).Buttery, cinnamonny, and light.My husband in ‘testing’ them has eaten half
the pan (probably will have to make them again before Christmas) and likes them
with an additional sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar best (tastes more like
Snickerdoodles) but also likes them without the topping.It is up to you whether to add the extra
cinnamon and sugar.
