I have to say, I'm generally much more of a brownie person than a blondie person. I love a good rich chocolate brownie, especially when it's dense and fudgy and flavorful. Crisp on the edges, crackly on the top, and soft and decadent in the middle... yum! Blondies just never seem to measure up. They're often dry or crumbly, too sweet, and just overall not great. They never seem to be very flavorful. But these snickerdoodle blondies? They could go toe to toe with any brownie out there and hold their own. They have a sweet and crisp cinnamon sugar top, are perfectly crisp on the  edges, and have a soft and chewy middle. They are addictingly delicious! 

One of the great things about these blondies is that the recipe makes a big 9 x 13 pan, so there are plenty to go around! They will keep for a few days if stored in an airtight container, but they never seem to last very long at my house. They're great to bring to summer picnics and potlucks because they're so quick to throw together, and they won't melt in the sun. I like them with a cold glass of milk, but my over-the-top husband loves them with a scoop of ice cream and caramel sauce on top. Either way, they are totally delicious!
Snickerdoodle Blondies

for the blondies:
2 2/3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla

for the topping:
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350. Line a 9 x 13 pan with parchment or foil, and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the brown sugar and butter together until well combined. Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix until the dough comes together. Spread the dough evenly in the prepared pan. In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the dough. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted two inches from the side of the pan comes out clean. Let cool completely before serving.
