Brown Sugar Snickerdoodle Blondies

These rich and soft Snickerdoodle Blondies use all brown sugar to get that chewy, molasses-y flavor we all love. The crackly cinnamon sugar topping is the best part!


  • 1 cup butter, 2 sticks, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar, I used dark but light is fine too
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 & 2/3 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, for topping
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, for topping


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9x13 inch pan with nonstick spray, or line with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream the butter until it is light and fluffy, at least 2 minutes. Add the 2 cups brown sugar and continue beating for 1 minute, scraping the sides and bottom of bowl.
  • Add 2 eggs and vanilla extract. Beat well.
  • Add the flour on top of the mixture but don't mix it in.
  • Use a small spoon to stir the baking powder, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt into the flour.
  • Beat the flour mixture in until barely combined. Once the flour streaks are gone you're done. Make sure to scrape the sides and bottom.
  • Use a spatula to scrape the dough (it's a very sticky dough) into the prepared pan. You can grease your hands or spatula with nonstick spray to press it down, or get your hands a little wet. Smooth the surface.
  • In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons sugar with2 teaspoons cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the top of the pan. Pat it down with your hands a little bit.
  • Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out of the center with no batter stuck to it.
