I just have to say, September weather is crazy.

Earlier this month it felt so much like fall. Now this week in Wisconsin it’s been feeling like it’s back to summer.

The nice part? Your slow cooker can be used in either season!

I know, you’re probably in the mindset that the slow cooker is meant just for fall/winter days. To make soups and roasts and used as a set it and forget it appliance.

Today I want to break the slow cooker mold though. With this snickerdoodle cookie! Yes, a cookie in your slow cooker.

Let me just tell you, this cookie/bar is incredible! Not only in flavor, but also in ease of making. So let’s just dive right in, shall we?

How to make a slow cooker snickerdoodle cookie

The slow cooker

First we obviously have to start with the slow cooker.

To ensure the cookie cooks through fully, you need to use a larger slow cooker. The traditional 7-8 quart works best.

Line the slow cooker with parchment paper. It’s okay that it’s not flat, or that it crinkles in the corners. We just want to make it super simple to pull the cookie out of the slow cooker, and ensure it doesn’t burn on the edges and bottom.

The snickerdoodle mix

There’s a bit of a spin on this classic snickerdoodle cookie for this slow cooker version.

To take a plain old cookie mix and turn it on it’s head, I added some lemon juice to spice things up a bit. It gives the cookie a nice tang, that’s not always there with this classic cookie.

Another spin? Coconut milk. It provides fat needed to make the cookie delicious, but also a subtle tropic flavor.

The lemon, coconut milk and a couple eggs are stirred together and poured on top of the cookie mix in the slow cooker.

They slowly start to ooze together, creating the most amazing cookie bar experience.

The cooking

Like we talked about earlier, the set it and forget it part of slow cooking is probably what makes it the best.

This snickerdoodle cookie bar cooks on high for almost three hours. Then sits for about 15 minutes to set up completely.

Since you lined the slow cooker ahead of time, now you can easily pull the cookie out and slice.
