All I can say about this recipe is, MAKE IT! If you like snickerdoodles, you will LOVE these. I ran 3 1/2 miles this morning and walked 2 to pick up my boy from school. As I was eating my second snickerdoodle bar I was thinking, dang I just ruined what I did today. But they were so good, I didn’t even care. Have you heard the saying, “skinny and sad or happy and fat?” Well I chose to be happy and fat today. And these were worth every mile I ran! Trust me, they are absolutely delicious and loved by the whole family!

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease bottom only of a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. In small bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In large bowl, beat butter on high until creamy. Beat in sugars. Gradually beat in eggs and vanilla into sugar mixture until combined. In low speed, beat in dry ingredients until combined.
Spoon half of the batter into pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle the cinnamon filling mixture on top. Drop the rest of the batter by teaspoons on top of the cinnamon filling mixture.
