These were the third type of “cookie” I made for my friend’s wedding. Snickerdoodle bars – but with a spin since I cut them with a round cookie cutter, I called them bites.
I used the recipe from Miss in the Kitchen. These are great because they take less time than even a snickerdoodle cookie (which I don’t know about you, but I always have every ingredient in my kitchen for a snickerdoodle) because you just cut the bars after you’re done. You don’t even need to roll each ball for a cookie. These were fun because I used a cookie cutter, and I thought it made them look really cute. Plus, since there’s a whole table of just wedding cookies, these bite-sized treats were easy to sample.
Here’s the recipe:
Yield: 9×11 inch pan
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- In a large mixer bowl beat butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and continue to beat until combined. Add flour and baking soda and combine.
- Pour into a greased 9 x 11 inch baking dish, spreading into an even layer.
- Combine 2 tablespoons sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over dough.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted comes out clean.
- Cool slightly before cutting into bars.
This is great for a party since there are so many bites that come out of one recipe.
