Gooey Cinnamon Squares

These gooey cinnamon squares are gooey on the inside, with a nice sturdy cookie crust. The cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top just sends these bars over the edge!

I am so excited about this recipe!!!

To me, fall means adding all of the spices to baking. Meaning nutmeg, cloves, all spice, ginger, and best of all: CINNAMON!

I want to top everything with cinnamon sugar. Really. It's bad.

This month, I was assigned Elizabeth's blog Food Ramblings as part of the Secret Recipe Club. Which was super exciting, because I have been following Elizabeth's blog for a while, and have been meaning to make one of her delicious looking recipes for a while now. In fact, I joined the Secret Recipe Club because of her!

So when I saw these cinnamon squares, I immediately wanted to make them. All my baking attempts have been dismal so far. One that Elizabeth described as finger licking good (okay, I am paraphrasing a little).


Gooey Cinnamon Squares


These cinnamon squares have everything I love in a dessert. Soft and gooey inside. A sturdy crust on the bottom. And some cinnamon sugar dusted on top to make them the perfect treat to go along with your cup of tea.

Having to start another long week is made 10x better with the fact that I am bringing 4 of these bars along with me to work. Scarfing these gooey cinnamon squares down on a Monday morning should be a requirement. This is what I call starting the week off on the right foot.

  13. Cinnamon might be my favorite spice. Actually like it a lot in savory things, but in sweet things it's irresistible. Speaking of which, these are totally irresistible. Really good stuff -- thanks.
