Bourbon Snickerdoodle Blondies

Delicious blondies with a hint of bourbon and topped with cinnamon sugar coating. Yum!!

This recipe is so so sooooo easy!! I love making blondies because I usually have all the ingredients in my pantry anddddd they come together in a matter of minutes! This particular recipe doesn’t even require a stand mixer or hand mixer! Less dishes to clean in the end which is always a win in my book.

The Set Up

You’ll want to start this recipe out by preheating your oven and preparing your baking dish. I love using parchment paper when I bake any types of bars because it allows for easy clean up and you can easily lift up the bars in one go when they come out of the oven (after being properly cooled of course). This also allows for easy cutting of the bars at the end.

Once your pan is prepared, melt the butter and add in the rest of your wet ingredients. You can use anywhere between 1 to 3 tablespoons of bourbon (or leave out completely) depending on how much you like the taste of it. Some people are bigger fans of alcohol in desserts than others.

Add in your dry ingredients and slowly incorporate into your wet ingredients. The cream of tartar is key to giving the blondies the snickerdoodle-like texture. Sprinkle your cinnamon sugar topping over the blondies and you’re good to go. SO EASY!!!
