Snickerdoodle Blondies (Snickerdoodle Heaven?)

I like to think that there will be a special calorie-free place in heaven reserved for Snickerdoodle lovers like me. There will be beaches made of cinnamon-sugar sand and surfboards made of Snickerdoodle Cookies. On a nearby magical mountain, I’ll ski down frozen layers of Snickerdoodle Ice Cream, maneuvering the mogul-like scoops with ease as I stop for a nibble every now and then. I’ll live in a seaside castle made of Snickerdoodle Cake and sleep in a bed made of tender Snickerdoodle Marshmallows. My computer will sit upon a desk made of Superdoodles, just in case I get a hankering for extra cinnamon in my land filled with sweetness. And the steps to the castle will be made of Snickerdoodle Blondies.

They’re sturdy enough for steps, really. Cinnamon chips tucked inside help anchor the crumbs together.  See how nicely they stack? Snickerdoodle Blondies 3
It’ll be a shocker if I ever actually make it inside my castle since I’ll be greeted the deliciousness of these blondies every time I approach my home.  Upon taking a bite, my taste buds will first be delighted with a light cinnamon-tainted glaze before my teeth break through the sugary crunch of the upper crust and into the tender Snickerdoodley interior.

I realize that my vision is quite a stretch, but I’m quite sure that foodies everywhere are hoping for some kind of Gourmet Heaven in their afterlife.  I have my Mom to thank for my Snickerdoodle love.  She made them often as I was growing up, and they’ve always remained my favorite.  I’d take Snickerdoodles over Chocolate Chip any ‘ol day.  And those Snickerdoodle Marshmallows mentioned above?  I have yet to develop that recipe ;)

    I adore Snickerdoodles. I got a recipe from Maris for these and used it for my Eat on $30 challenge – they’re very economical to make. Going to have to try this recipe as well!

    The criss cross icing looks great on these, I must confess I am yet to taste a snickerdoodle although I have heard of them via Nigella Lawson. I like cinnamon so I’m sure I’d like them.

    Snickerdoodles are a little slice of heaven. Have never made the blondies…
    I was determined to do so and had a recipe which called for cinnamon chips- sized like chocolate chips- but could not find the them here, so I mail-ordered them. They arrived completely melted; one big mass. The disadvantages of living in Florida!
    I tried chopping the mass up into little pieces and it was very unsuccessful!

    I’ve never been a snickerdoodle fan, but then I recently tried a gluten-free version from Whole Foods that was actually really good. It piqued my interest. I wonder if this recipe would translate well GF?

    We’ve long been a fan of snickerdoodle blondies. We’ve actually never had a homemade snickerdoodle cookie.

    Can’t wait for your snickerdoodle marshmallow creation! :)

    I am a little late to the party on this one. Discovered these through your Instagram account yesterday. I had a heck of a time trying to locate the cinnamon chips but discovered this make your own http://www.brighteyedbaker.com/2012/03/04/diy-cinnamon-chips/
    I hope you don’t mind me sharing that. I truly love snickerdoodles and wanted to make sure the cinnamon experience was prominent :)
    My house smells like heaven!!
