Sugar Cookie Bars

Happy Valentines Day! I decided to make one of my favorite cookies today to share with my sweeties. I love sugar cookies but was looking for an easier way to make them. These sugar cookie bars were the perfect recipe. They were pretty simple to make and didn't take much time to prepare at all. Most importantly, they were delicious!

Sugar Cookie Bars

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Line a rimmed 10 x 15-inch (or 9×9-inch brownie pan) with parchment paper; set aside.

Cream the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Reduce the mixer speed to medium and add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Add the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda, mixing well.
Reduce the mixer speed to low, and slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Mix until thoroughly combined. Using a rubber spatula, evenly spread the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet (or brownie pan).

Bake for about 15 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. (They should be light golden brown). Let cool completely.

My Simple Frosting Recipe

2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Combine ingredients and beat on medium speed until smooth and fluffy. Spread frosting over bars and decorate.
