Easy Peasy Sugar Cookie Bars...



Yesterday I slept in....like really slept in....like I woke up and it was 9:30 in the morning. What!! That never happens. I had woke up super early with a HUGE headache, took some medicine and went back to bed. Those sweet red heads of mine must have known I was exhausted because they quietly red and watched brain pop videos, while Mama slept.

When I finally did get up for the day, I decided we needed to make a sweet treat together. I decided on sugar cookie bars. Have you all tried these before? Oh my gosh! They are so dang delicious. The perfect treat!

This recipe is one of my favorite cookie bar recipes. Enjoy!


Sugar Cookie Bars

1 cup butter, at room temperature
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda


Preheat oven to 375. Grease a cookie sheet with edge (jelly roll pan). In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Next add dry ingredients.. Mix until just combined. Spread onto baking sheet. Use hands to really spread out the dough. Spray your hands with some cooking spray to prevent sticking. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden around the edges. Once cooled, spread with icing and sprinkles.

Fluffy Buttercream Icing

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla
4 to 5 cups powdered sugar

combine all ingredients until well blended. Add more or less powdered sugar, according to desired consistency. 

Don't forget to top your bars with cookies. We only had Halloween and Christmas colored sprinkles, so the kids decided to combine the two. We now have a multi colored extravaganza going on. These bars are delicious no matter the color of the sprinkles. :)
