Snickerdoodle cookies used to be a staple in our house as my kids were growing up! We enjoyed making them together and then eating them as a family. Yummy!! One of my favorite things to do with my kids is to find new recipes and make them together. Not only does this help them learn how to cook but it’s so fun and delicious (most of the time)! These Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars are a delightful twist on the regular snickerdoodle cookie recipe. You just might find that you like these even more!
