Brown Butter Snickerdoodle Blondies are buttery and gooey, soft and dense with a crunchy cinnamon and sugar topping. This is the BEST blondies recipe ever!
Melt the butter in a pan with a light colored bottom over medium-low heat. Continue heating, stirring often, until the butter browns on the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and pour the brown butter, scraping the pan to get all of the brown bits, into a large glass bowl to cool a bit.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
Pour the flour mixture, brown sugar and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar into the bowl of brown butter and stir to combine. This can be done with a mixer or by hand.
Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
Spread the batter into a greased 9-inch pan.
Mix two tablespoons of granulated sugar and the cinnamon together. Sprinkle over the batter in the pan.
Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Cool the bars in the pan before cutting into squares.
