Snickerdoodle Blondies

I found this recipe a few weeks ago and had time to make them today.  Very good!!!

Snickerdoodle Blondies
2 sticks softened butter
1 c sugar
1 c lightly packed brown sugar
3 oz. mascarpone cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
3/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 c flour

cinnamon sugar mixture of 1/2 c sugar and 2 TBL cinnamon

Prepare a 13X9 pan by greasing it with butter first, and then sprinkling cinnamon sugar all over the pan.
Mix together the butter and sugars.  Beat till well blended and smooth.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Scrape the sides of the bowl often.  Then add the mascarpone cheese and vanilla and beat very well.
Sift together all the dry ingredients.  Add to the sugar/butter mixture a bit at a time, beating after each addition.
When well mixed, put batter into prepared pan.  Spread out evenly.  Sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of batter.
Bake in a 350* oven for 30 minutes.  It might take a bit longer . . . mine did . . .due to oven differences.  But, don't over bake because the bars will get too hard and crispy.
Cool and cut into bars.  (But really good when cut when warm and served with vanilla ice cream!)
