  • 2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 cup packed brown sugar

  • cup butter

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over edges of pan. Grease foil; set pan aside. In a medium bowl stir together flour, the 2 teaspoons cinnamon, the baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.

  2. In a medium saucepan cook and stir brown sugar and the 2/3 cup butter over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until combined.

  3. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading evenly. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly in pan on a wire rack.

  4. In a small bowl stir together granulated sugar and the 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Brush warm bars with the 1 tablespoon melted butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar; cool completely. Using the edges of the foil, lift uncut bars from pan. Cut into bars.
