sugar cookie bars

We had a family party and they requested sugar cookies.  I was just too tired to roll out the dough and cut out the cookies.  So I made sugar cookie bars.  They were a hit and so easy.  These will definately be made again and again.

Sugar Cookie Bars

Cookie Base

1 Cup butter, softened
2 Cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
5 Cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda


1 Cup butter, softened
4 tsp vanilla
6-7 Cups powdered sugar
5-6 Tbsp milk

1. For the cookie base, mix butter, sugar, and eggs.  Then add remaining ingredients, mix well.

2. Press dough onto greased cookie sheet and cook at 350 for 17-20 minutes.  Edges will become slightly brown.

3. For the frosting.  Mix all ingredients until it is at the consistency you like.  Spread on cookies once they have cooled.
