Sugar Cookie Bars Feature


I found this recipe on  A Creative Princess and wanted to share it here………… While I was checking out linkies last Sunday I found this “yummylicious” cookie,my favorite from childhood but a whole lot easier, bake all at once and you have sugar cookie bars!
Sugar Cookie Bars with Cream-Cheese Butter Frosting 
Ingredients
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
5 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
parchment paper
*(Notes in parentheses are mine, just like this one. :) )
Directions…

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. (I beat the butter and sugar together, for about 5 minutes, until it was really light and fluffy.)  Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg. Add vanilla extract and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and stir with a wire whisk to mix well. Add to wet mixture and mix just until combined. Spread dough onto a greased(I used parchment paper lined) 13 x 18 baking sheet. (I like parchment, ’cause there is, absolutely, no sticking. JMO. ;) ) Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until light golden brown or until a toothpick comes out clean. The bars won’t look done so do the toothpick test. Cool completely and then frost.

Frosting…

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
5 cups powdered sugar
1 tbsp. milk
food coloring (if desired)
sprinkles (of course)
Directions…

Combine butter and cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla extract and salt. Add powdered sugar in 1 cup increments until combined, then add milk and mix until smooth and spreading consistency. Spread over cooled sugar cookie bars.

This frosting is to die for! When I made it, I only had 4 cups of powdered sugar, so I just omitted the milk.  Let me tell you, I could have eaten the whole bowl, with a spoon, it was that good!
Enjoy!
