Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

These bars are absolutely delicious! I came across a recipe for a softer sugar cookie and decided to tweak it and give it a shot. However, I was too tired to go through the work of rolling the cookies out, using cookie cutters, etc., so I decided to just press them into the pan and bake it up and frost it all in one, and they turned out fabulous!! These taste just like nice soft sugar cookies with classic icing, and I can pretty much guarantee you'll be hooked- these disappeared in my house very fast!

Here's the dough all mixed up...

And the dough all patted out into the pan.

Here's the cookie bars all baked up so you can see how they should look!

And here's the icing, I decided on blue and added sprinkles on top!

Soft Sugar Cookies
-1 cup butter, softened
-2 cups white sugar
-3 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1 1/2 cups plain yogurt (I used low-fat)
-5-6 cups flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream the butter and sugar, then beat in the eggs, vanilla, and yogurt. Add 5 cups of flour and the other dry ingredients, then add more flour a 1/4 cup at a time until desired consistency is achieved. Pat dough into a greased pan and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 F (or roll to 1/4 inch thick and cut out and bake for 7-8 minutes).

Classic Confectioner Sugar's Frosting
-1 cup butter, softened
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-4 cups confectioner's sugar
-about 6 tablespoons heavy cream
-food coloring
Cream all ingredients together, adjusting the level of heavy cream for desired consistency, then Frost away! Sprinkles are optional.

Here are the bars all frosted up...

And ready to be eaten- I hope you try this and enjoy!

Savor it!
love, rue
