Cinnamon chips! These are so yummy. Keep an eye out at your grocery store, they seem easier to find around baking season. You can always order them on Amazon if you can’t find them.

Tips For Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cake Bars

*Use a plastic knife to cut the bars into squares. Doesn’t stick to bars, one of my favorite tricks.

*Try also serving bars warm with a small scoop of ice cream on top.

*Store leftovers in an airtight container. They’re delicious chilled too.

    Made this recipe and they did not have any integrity at all. They fell apart when I tried to cut them out to take them to a special event but was not able to bring them. Disappointed, they did taste good though.
