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
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.
