Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. So, I made sure to pin this recipe as soon as I saw it. I made them this past week for my husband to bring to work. It was his first week back after the baby was born and he wanted to do something to say thank you to his team for doing a great job while he was gone. So, I baked for them. I'm a fan of this recipe because it didn't call for a lot of ingredients therefore it was quick to throw together. I followed the recipe below but did increase the amount of cinnamon I added to the mixture by a tsp (or two). Next time, I will add cinnamon and white chocolate chips to the batter to give it a little more texture and flavor. Enjoy!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar + 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in salt, egg and vanilla extract until well combined. Add in flour and stir until no streaks of dry ingredients remain. Pour dough – it will be thick – into prepared baking dish and smooth it into an even layer.
Stir together remaining 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp ground cinnamon. Sprinkle dough evenly with cinnamon sugar mixture.
Bake for about 30 minutes, until bars are set and the edges are just very lightly browned. Cool in the pan before slicing.
