I have not made these in quite a while. I did however make them yesterday to take them to my Mom's. They are a family favorite!
Here is what you need to make them:
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 1 3/4 eggs, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 tablespoons sugar
- 1 3/4 teaspoons cinnamon
2 In large bowl, beat together butter and brown sugar for 3-5 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla, and beat until smooth.
3 Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Spread evenly in prepared pan (mixture will be somewhat cookiebatter-ish, so it's best to spread it out with a greased spatula or your hands -- I just spray a spatula with cooking spray). Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon, in a little bowl. Evenly sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over the top of the batter. Bake 25-30 minutes or until surface springs back when gently pressed. Cool before cutting. Makes 20-24 bars.
