Sugar cookie bars. Yum.
Sugar Cookie Bars
I saw these sugar cookie bars popping up on a lot of blogs a while back and knew I was going to get around to baking them one of these days. I wish I had done it a lot sooner because this is a great recipe. It’s simple, quick and easy; plus it’s downright delicious. I mean really delicious. I ate two while I was trying to get a good photo of them! They’d be great without the icing too – maybe with just some sprinkles or something on top. I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 9″ square pan. It’s a good thing I did too – this is throwing my healthier eating right out the window.
Recipe: Sugar Cookie Bars
(adapted from Real Mom Kitchen)
1 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
2 c. granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
5 c. all-purpose flour (I made a few changes here by using some soy flour, whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour.)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition. Add vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda; stir with a whisk to combine. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Spread into a greased baking sheet (approx. 13×18″). Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean. Cool completely and frost with your favorite buttercream icing.
