Sugar Cookie Bars

by Laura

This will be the last sweet treat I post for Valentine’s. Sugar cookies tend to be a Valentine traditional for a lot of people. If you want sugar cookies for Valentine’s, but don’t want all of the work, this could be your answer, Sugar Cookie Bars.

This recipe comes from Annemarie at Taste Buds. Annemarie and I like a lot of the same things when it comes to cooking. We both recently posted the same recipe one day. So thanks Annemarie, this recipe is a keeper.

This sugar cookie is spread out into a baking sheet to cook, no rolling and cutting here. Then topped with a yummy, sweet frosting and you cut the cookies into bars. At this point you could still have fun and top them off with sprinkles, chocolate hearts etc. Don’t miss out on sugar cookies for this Valentine’s, whip up these sugar cookie bars.

Just made these to take to school for my daughter’s V-day party. Turned out fantastic! I baked them on Sunday and then Monday night cut out heart shapes with a cookie cutter. They were just as soft and delicious Monday as they were fresh on Sunday. I should add I live in Denver, and made no adjustments for high altitude – no issues what-so-ever! Thanks for the recipe!

I am eating one of these as I write this. These are so good and moist and buttery. My husband does not like sweets so I brought them to work and everyone has loved them. The only thing I did different was use self rising flour cause that is what I had and made a cream cheese frosting, because I did not have REAL butter or shortening to make your frosting, but I look forward to making your frosting next time. Thanks so much!!!

Great recipe; thanks. My son wanted a sugar cookie cake and this recipe delivered. We just made two pans and ate a ton of the one we left unfrosted already, the night before the big day. Only suggestion—I had a little trouble spreading the batter in the pan but a ran my hands under cold water and then used them to spread the dough in the pan and it worked fine. Trying the frosting in the morning…

Thanks so much for this recipe! I usually hate sugar cookies (both the making and the eating) because they take so long to make and their soft, chewy texture doesn’t last. These are SO good. Thanks again!
