SnickerDoodle Blondies

For whatever reason I have never tried a snickerdoodle.  I know, where have I been all my life, but seriously I never had...until now.  I think the reason I waited so long to try them is because of the name.  I dislike the Snicker candy bar (nice reasoning huh?) so there is no way I would ever like a snickerdoodle..right?  WRONG!  These soft spongy cinnamon sugary cake like bars are fantastic!  

2 2/3 cups of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of packed brown sugar
1 cup of butter at room temperature
2 eggs at room temperature
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease or line a 9x13 pan

Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt.  Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy.  3-5 minutes.
Add in the eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla.  Beat until smooth.
With a wooden spoon, stir in the flour mixture until blended.
Using a spatula, spread in the pan.  Batter is thick.
Combine the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Sprinkle on top until completely covered.
Bake 28-32 minutes or until center springs back when gently pressed.
Cool before cutting.
