Snickerdoodle Shortbread Bars

snickderdoodle shortbread bars

This is what happens when your outfit of the day is a pair of cozy uggs, pj bottoms and boyfriend’s flannel and the boyfriend has left you for a business lunch meeting… as promised, snickerdoodle shortbread bars!

Think delicious buttery cookie sprinkled with equally delicious cinnamon sugar! And yes, it really took that much butter…

I love how shortbread cookies don’t contain any eggs!

I may be a heavy handed sprinkler :)

I highly recommend scoring this into bars pre-bake and do not use a sharp knife like a did! I ruined my pretty shiny bakeware :'(

Do you have any favorite shortbread cookies? I would love to try yours because I love shortbread!

Have a beautiful day! xoxo, kat

    1. Sometimes I forget too! It took 35 mins from start to finish! I think these are my go-to last minute cookie because I always have all the ingredients available. Have a great day :)
