Cinnamon Roll Blondies Recipe

Cinnamon Roll Blondies Recipe
Bar cookies are the easiest and fastest type of cookies, and there are thousands of varieties, including brownies. So when my son, Mitch, sent me a recipe for Cinnamon Roll Blondies hoping I would make them so he didn’t have to, I jumped at the chance for something new. Of course I adapted the recipe to my methods, and added a better, lighter cream cheese frosting to the top, and found that these bars are easy and mouthwatering.
Almost everyone loves cinnamon rolls, and the taste of these bars will remind you of them. They are quicker and easier, though, so you definitely have time to make them.
