Friday Foodspiration: Snickerdoodle Bars


I have a cookie confession . . . when I make cookies I end up eating way too much cookie dough. The problem is, you scoop out the first tray and then the rest of the dough just sits there on the counter calling my name. It’s a temptation I find nearly impossible not to give into.

My solution is to make just about every cookie into a bar. That way I can scoop all the dough into a pan and shove in the oven before I go overboard. I might still have a taste of the raw dough, but there isn’t going back for seconds, or thirds, or fifths.

So here I have snickerdoodle cookies made into bars . . . it turned out to be one of my families favorite gluten, grain, dairy, sugar free recipe ever!
