Sugar Cookie Bars 

Sugar Cookie Bars

My daughter had sent me a pin last year to make sugar cookie bars for when she came to visit. I didn’t get the chance then so I made them for her when she came home for Easter a few weeks ago. The recipe made a 13 x 9 pan so I cut the recipe in half because I was also making an Oreo cheesecake for my son and didn’t want a bunch of leftovers since I don’t eat sugar. I made them in a 8 x 8 pan and the cookie bars came out fairly thin. I suppose I should have made the whole recipe and just put some in the freezer. But with the icing added on top she said they were really good so I guess all in all it was a success! 


For the cookie:

1 cup butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1½ cups sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ tsp baking soda

For the frosting:

3/4 cup salted butter, room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-4 tablespoons heavy cream

Here is the link the the pin where the original recipe is found. You can find the directions there.

  1. These look delicious. We love sugar cookies at our house and I have never made this type of bars before. I can’t wait to try them. Pinning!

  2. My boys love sugar cookies and I don’t like them at all so they’re perfect for me to make when they want a sweet treat and I want to watch my waist. These do look good and sound easier to make than traditional sugar cookies. Pinned.
