As if the last cinnamon bars were not good enough I had to make some again. This time using a different recipe.
I saw some similar bars on Pinterest. They looked so good. But I read that some people that they were oh so sweet so I changed it up a bit. I am totally happy with the results.
I just want to say I LOVE these bars. Yes, I like the last ones too but these bars are less sweet and they have that melt in your mouth effect.
Cinnamon BarsWhen I measure the brown sugar, I dip into the jar with my measuring cup and have it heaping then I press it against the side of the container. So it isn't loose but it isn't really packed either. I guess next time I make this I will weigh it for a more accurate amount.
2 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 generous teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
cinnamon sugar topping:
2-3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
Mix dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. In a large bowl beat butter and brown sugar together. Add eggs one at a time, then vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients. Spread into prepared 9 x 13 pan. Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes.
