Snickerdoodle Bars – Secret Recipe Club (August 2016)

#Secret Recipe Club

This month I was selected to peruse Julie’s blog – Little Bit of Everything.  Julie is from Nebraska.  She has an impressive collection of over 100 cookbooks!  She has also written a cooking bucket list of 50 recipes she would like to try to cook or bake.

I enjoyed looking through her blog in order to find something to cook.

As always, I’m going to highlight 5 recipes with links that caught my attention before I share the recipe I decided to make this month.

  1. Pineapple Upside Down Freezer Jam – This recipe sounded so delicious!  We love our jams and jellies around here.
  2. Watermelon, Basil, Feta Salad – When my friend came to visit a week and a half ago, I had a delicious salad at the one of the restaurants where we had dinner.  Molly and I both enjoyed the salad.  I’m glad to find this recipe.
  3. Baby Carrots with Dill Butter – Hubby only likes cooked carrots.  This is another version of cooked carrots that he might enjoy having as a side dish.
  4. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread – Sound delicious!
  5. Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake – Yummy!

This month’s recipe

So what did I decide to make this month?  I decided to make Snickerdoodle Bars.  My boys love when I make snickerdoodles for Christmas.  So I thought this would be a great recipe that the boys would enjoy as a dessert for the week.

You could also make this recipe, cut into bars, and then freeze those bars for later.
