Football Friday #6 snickerdoodle gingerbread bars with cinnamon sugar frosting

Go Bills!

Doesn’t get much more fall-like than today’ “Go Bills” treat. It’s made with a snickerdoodle cookie mix, molasses, cinnamon, ginger and allspice. And the house smells so good. You can use a sugar cookie mix if you want. I also opted to frost them with a simple buttercream frosting and added some cinnamon sugar because more sweetness is always good – with food and in life.

Press into foiled pan (you likely will have to flour your hands to do this. Sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar from the cookie mix on top. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. These are kind of hard to tell when they are done, but you don’t want to overbake them. Cool completely.
