GF Snickerdoodle Blondies

This morning, my friend, Sherry tagged me in Facebook with a recipe for Snickerdoodle Brownies.  She asked if I would bake a batch!  I did a quick check of my pantry and found that I had all the necessary ingredients.  I put my own twist on them and used gluten free all purpose flour instead of wheat flour.  I doubled the recipe below so Sherry could take a batch home to here family.  The blondies took about 10 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to bake! This is a great alternative to making cookies.

GF Snickerdoodle Blondies:
(Serves 20)

2 2/3 cups GF all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350*. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and beat until well blended. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. In a separate bowl, combine the white sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly over the top of the blondie batter. Bake for 25 minutes and remove from the oven when a toothpick put into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10-15 minutes prior to cutting.

  1. This has become my daughter's favorite cookie. When I make these to take to a church supper, she tells people these are gf in hopes they won't eat them. It isn't working because the non-gf people like them too.
