Ingredients

Bars:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/3 cups all purpose flour

Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Icing:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk
  •  

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13” pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cream butter and both sugars with a stand or a hand mixer. Beat in eggs, then mix in vanilla, baking powder, and salt. Slowly stir in flour, mixing until combined.
  • Spread 2/3 of the batter in the bottom of the prepared pan. The dough is sticky and will make a thin layer. Spray your hands with cooking spray to help ease this process.
  • Combine filling in a small bowl, sprinkle evenly over bottom layer. Drop 1 tablespoon balls of remaining dough evenly over the top of the filling. Spread lightly with your fingers, it will not cover completely.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Cool one hour before glazing.
  • To make the glaze: whisk all ingredients in a small bowl, then frost the bars. Let set before cutting.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
