Snickerdoodle Blondies

I got this recipe from My Baking Addiction, and all I can say is THANK YOU! These bar cookies remind me of our favorite ginger cookie recipe, but with all the rich, chewy denseness that is the hallmark of bar desserts. The name might be a little misleading. They don't taste like snickerdoodle cookies: they are denser and spicier. Think: blonde spice brownies. Or, just bake up a batch and name 'em yourself.

2 2/3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp salt
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, soft
2 eggs, room temp
1 Tbs vanilla
2 Tbs sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9x13 pan. In mixer, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy-ish. Add in eggs and vanilla, and beat until smooth. Mix in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt until well blended. Spread evenly in pan. Combine the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the top. Bake 25-30 minutes until surface springs back when gently pressed. Cool before cutting.
