I first shared this recipe back in 2010, but with Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought it was worth repeating. I don’t know about you, but I hate all the rolling and cutting and frosting involved with making sugar cookies. That’s why I think sugar cookie bars are a brilliant idea! And these cookie bars aren’t just quick and easy, they’re delicious too. Thick and soft, just the way sugar cookies should be.
You can color your frosting and use different sprinkles to dress these up for any occasion, just like regular sugar cookies. In an airtight container, these will stay soft for several days (I think they were even better on the second day). This recipe will feed a crowd, so it’s perfect for a class party (if you’re allowed to bring homemade treats) or Valentine’s for all of your neighbors. I may never make cut-out sugar cookies again.
Who Dished It Up First: Adapted from a recipe I spotted at The Girl Who Ate Everything. I’m glad she shared it and made sugar cookie baking so much easier!
