Sugar Cookie Bar

This sugar cookie bar is out of this world delicious.  I have made these to take to church and everyone loves them.  They even look like I put a lot of trouble into them and that is far from the truth these are super easy and make enough for a crowd.  I will be making these for the Golf Team's pizza party on Tuesday night.  These cookies come from the blog The Girl Who Ate Everything  Christy received this recipe from a reader and she also gives these cookie bars an awesome review.  Christy did change her icing on half of her bars to an almond icing.  I used vanilla in mine.

Thanks Christy (The Girl Who Ate Everything) and Monica (Lick The Bowl Good) for inspiring me to do this blog.  I am sure if you head on over to their blogs you will fall in love with them too and maybe you will decide to start blogging.

Sugar Cookie Bars
source: The Girl Who Ate Everything

1 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg. Add vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda and stir with a whisk to combine. Add to wet mixture and mix just until combined. 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 (they won't look done so do the toothpick test). Cool completely and frost.

Frosting

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
4 ounces cream cheese (1/2 of an 8 oz block) softened
1 tsp vanilla (Christy used almond extract for half of the frosting)
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups powdered sugar
5 Tbsp milk
food coloring and sprinkles (if desired)

For frosting combine butter and cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla and salt. Add powdered sugar in 1-2 cup increments until combined, then add milk a little at a time and mix until smooth and spreading consistency. You may not need all the milk! Spread over cooled cookie bars.
