These bars are extremely easy to throw together because all the ingredients are mixed in one bowl. Unlike snickerdoodle cookies, there is no need to chill or roll dough.

Another reason I turn to this recipe time and again is because I always have all the ingredients on hand!
To make Snickerdoodle Bars you only need these kitchen staples:
- Baking Powder
- Cream of Tartar
- Powdered Sugar
But I don’t have cream of tartar, is there a substitute?
Cream of tartar gives snickerdoodle cookies and bars that wonderful soft, doughy texture. It’s actually a leavener that reacts with baking powder or baking soda.
If you don’t have cream of tartar on hand substitute 2 teaspoons of lemon juice or vinegar for every 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar called for.
In this Snickerdoodle Bars recipe, substitute 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar for the 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar.
