These Snickerdoodle Bars are filled with dulce de leche. They are so chewy, soft, and delicious, with a slightly crispy cinnamon-sugar topping.
Let’s start by making the Cinnamon Sugar, it gives the bars a crunchy topping. Simply mix 1/3 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
The dough is very similar to a blondie recipe. Mix the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt together. Set it aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer.
Add the sugars and beat to combine. Add the eggs. Follow with a teaspoon vanilla, stir to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl, and mix on low with the mixer.
To assemble, spread half of the dough on the bottom of the baking pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top. Spread the dulce de leche on top of the dough. Top with the remaining dough. Sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon sugar on top.
Let the bars cool down for 15 minutes in the pan. Remove them from the pan by lifting the handles of the parchment paper. Let them cool down another 15 minutes and slice them.
You can serve the snickerdoodle cookie bars as they are. Or you can drizzle more dulce de leche on top.
I love dulce de leche, and have many recipes using this wonderful ingredient. My favorite method for making dulce de leche at home is the Instant pot, or pressure cooker method
