  • Sugar Cookie Bars So soft and tasty, these cookie bars are no snack. They’re dessert.


    Cookies: 21⁄2 cups bread flour (or all-purpose flour is fine) 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder 1⁄2 teaspoon salt 1⁄2 cup butter, softened 1 cup granulated sugar 1 egg 1⁄2 tablespoon sour cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Frosting: 1⁄2 cup butter, softened 4 cups powdered sugar 1⁄4 cup Half and Half 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Pinch of salt Several drops of food coloring (optional)


    Cookies: 1. Preheat oven to 375ºF and grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. 2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. 3. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. (The longer you beat it, the fluffier your cookies will be.) 4. Add egg and combine well. 5. Add sour cream and vanilla and mix until completely blended. 6. Slowly add the flour mixture and stir until well combined. Gently press the batter into the greased baking dish and spread out with hands. (If you butter your hands, this will help with the stickiness.) Bake 17-20 minutes, or until edges become lightly golden. Set aside to cool completely.

    Frosting: 1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter, powdered sugar, and Half and Half until light and fluffy. 2. Stir in vanilla and salt. Combine well. 3. Add food coloring until desired color. 4. Frost your cooled cookie bars evenly. 5. Cut into squares and serve.
