Surprise Recipe Swap

It's that time of the month again - Surprise Recipe Swap.  Each month I am paired with a blogger.  I get to check out their blog and pick a recipe to cook.  Another blogger looks at my blog and cooks one of my recipes.  It is so much fun!  Thanks to Jutta from Hungry Little Girl for organizing this every month!

This month I was paired with Jenni from Jenni's Ferris Wheel of Food.  I really liked her blog.  It not only had recipes, but I got to sneak a peek at some crafts she was working on.  Jenni is a woman after my own heart!

I chose to cook her recipe for Snickerdoodle Blondies.  They looked so good!  Here are the ingredients:

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 eggs, room temperature
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
2 Tbsp granulated sugar (for topping)
2 tsp cinnamon (for topping)

In your mixer, combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Add the baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.  Slowly add the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until all is combined.  Stir in the cinnamon chips.  I didn't have cinnamon chips, so I added chocolate chips.

Press into a 9x13 pan that is well greased. 

Combine the sugar and cinnamon for the topping.  Sprinkle on top.  Cook in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.

Let the blondies cool and then cut into squares.

These were so good!  Check out Jenni's blog!  You won't be disappointed.
