Chrismas sugar cookie bars


¾ cup of unsalted butter softened to room temperature
1 cup of granulated sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract OR ½ teaspoon almond
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder


½ cup softened butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2-3 Tablespoons heavy cream or whole milk


Preheat oven to 350˚F.
Line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper
Lightly grease or butter the parchment paper
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy

Beat the eggs in, one at a time, scraping the bowl between each addition

Mix in the vanilla extract
In a smaller bowl stir the flour, salt, and baking powder together

Add it to the sugar mixture and mix well
Scrape the dough into a 9x13 pan and pan out
Bake at 350˚ for 20 minutes or until the cookie is just lightly browned

Remove from the oven and cool completely in the pan on a wire rack

When you’re ready to frost put the soft butter in a mixing bowl and mix it lightly to make it smooth
Then mix in the powdered sugar, it will look crumbly
Add the vanilla, a pinch of salt, and one Tablespoon of the milk

Mix with the mixer, add another Tablespoon of milk and see how it looks, if it’s soft and spreadable you’re done, if you need to add more milk to make it spreadable you can add the last Tablespoon

Frost the sugar cookie in the pan and cover with desired sprinkles

Lift it out of the pan by the parchment paper and cut into bars
