Friendship And Snickerdoodle Bars


Won't you sit down at my table, sweet friends,
and enjoy a cup of hot coffee with a Snickerdoodle treat :)
The Snickerdoodle Bars recipe is at the end of the post.
They are OH SO good!


The joy of friendship is a treasure we ought to cherish. . .


We ought to nurture it and treat it with tender-loving care.


Friendship is not something we should take for granted,
but rather hold on to with gratitude and love.


Friendship is sweet to the soul
and good for the heart.


So sit with me for a while, dear one, and we shall enjoy the delights of friendship,
and we shall revel in the wonder and beauty of becoming kindred-spirits.


Blessings and love to you on this beautiful day!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

 The lovely mug was a gift from my dear friend, Sylvia, who blogs at
Sylvia was one of my first followers almost two years ago when I started blogging
and we have become good friends ever since :)


Snickerdoodle Bars

2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cinnamon Filling

1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Glaze

1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 - 2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease bottom only of a 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat butter with mixer until creamy.
Beat in sugars.
Gradually beat in eggs and vanilla into sugar mixture until combined.
On low speed, beat in dry ingredients until combined.

Spread half the batter into pan; spread evenly (it's very sticky)
Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over batter.

Dollop teaspoon size amounts of remaining batter evenly over cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown
and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely - about an hour.

In a small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth
and drizzle  over bars.

ENJOY!

" Hand in hand we walk together, heart to heart friends forever" friends are special gifts sent from God, may we cherish those gifts.

Good Morning Stephanie ~ If I didn't have to take my car in for service this morning, I'd sit at your table, sip your tea, and have a Snickerdoodle.

I'm smiling over the "glaze" as Betsy (blog friend) has deemed me "Queen of Drizzle" I put it on everything I bake....

Thanks for a tender post on friendship...so glad we are now.

I'm so happy to call you my friend, my lovely Stephanie. Your friendship warms my heart and soul.
The snickerdoodle bars look sooo good! I will be making them soon. They would perfect for a tea time treat and much easier than making cookies. I need to make a dessert for a funeral this Saturday and these would be welcomed, I'm sure. xo

You are so right about friendship. Where would we be without friends? Some friends know us better than family.

GREAT recipe- I am copying it to my files. I have never made Snickerdoodle anything before! xo Diana

Good Morning!!
Pinned these quotes...
You are my friend and I am thinking of you this morning. I believe it was over this exact cookie recipe we had our first correspondence!
Can I use the first quote on my Blog post? Time for my devotionals now before the day gets away.
Blessings, Roxy

Hi Stephanie,
Your composition of beautiful words, images and reminders of the importance of friendship actually brought tears to my eyes this morning.
I can't tell you how many times I am moved when I visit you and I thank you for that, my friend.
How lucky I am to know you! Enjoy your Sunday. Hugs!
