Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Bars

Love cinnamon? Here’s another bar recipe that goes from a saucepan to the oven in minutes! Don’t let their plain, unfrosted appearance fool you—these bars are moist and chewy and indescribably delicious!

2 cups flour
2 T. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
2 cups brown sugar, packed
2/3 cup butter
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 T. sugar
1tsp. cinnamon
1 T. melted butter

Preheat oven to 350º. Line a 9-inch baking pan with foil so that a flap extends on 2 sides, and spray/grease the foil. Combine the flour, 2 T. cinnamon, baking powder and soda in a small bowl and set aside. In a 2-quart saucepan on the stove, cook and stir the brown sugar and butter until butter is melted. Cool slightly. Stir in eggs and vanilla, then stir in the flour mixture. Spread the batter in the pan and bake 30-35 minutes, until a pick in the center comes out clean (bars will still seem a bit doughy, but don’t overbake!) While bars are still warm, brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture. Cool completely. Lift out of the pan with the foil to cut. 24 small bars.

Kitchen Hint: Double this recipe to make in a 9×13-inch pan.
