Snickerdoodle Crumb Bars

Do you ever want to make something sweet but you don't have all of the right ingredients. It seems like every recipe calls for something you don't have. 

Well, here is a recipe that uses ingredients that are pantry basics, so you can bake up a batch on demand. Nothing special needed.

I needed something for my husband to take into work and every recipe I pulled had something that I didn't have except for this one. Snickerdoodle Crumb Bars is a recipe you can make from normal pantry basics.

  1. Oh nice. I pack lunch daily for my hubs and me as well. What a nice surprise this would be! And I have all that stuff in my pantry...as you said. Thank you for sharing with The Blogging Grandmothers. I have shared your post on social media.

    1. Clearissa,
      I love having a recipe that I can go to that I know I have all the ingredients and this is mine.
      Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

  2. You are so right, no matter how much you plan to have a well-stocked kitchen, it does seem so common to be missing one ingredient or another. These sound delicious, probably because snickerdoodles are one of our favorite cookies; but these would be so much quicker to mix up! Thanks for sharing!

    1. I find myself in that situation all the time, wanting to make something and always missing an ingredient. You need to have a backup and this is mine.
      Thanks for stopping by.
      Have a great week.


I would love to hear from you. Your comments are special to me.
