Bar Cookies: Sugar Cookies fast!

Sugar Cookie Bars
  • 1 cup butter at room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  1. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg.
  3. Add vanilla & mix well.
  4. In a separate bowl combine flour, salt & soda & stir with a whisk to combine. Add to wet mixture and mix just until combined.
  5. Spread on a greased baking sheet (use a 13 x 18 pan). Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 min, until light golden brown or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely and frost.
What a great recipe! I don't know why I haven't thought of making sugar cookies in bar-form before, but this works! I halved the recipe and put it in my 11x8 glass baking dish and it took around 20 minutes at 350 (I cooked it lower because of the glass). They were thick and delicious, and enough for our family! We gobbled them up in a day. I'll use the whole recipe for when I need to take a dessert over for a big family/group dessert. It will feed a lot...just pile on the frosting and fun sprinkles!

Holy frosting. Do these taste like the crust on fruit pizza?

I made these last week. They were great and so much easier than cutting out regular sugar cookies. We didn't even use frosting because they were good plain. I'll definitely be adding this to my new favorites.
