Ingredients

  • Pinkies Sugar Cookie Bars:
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup but­ter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Have a cookie sheet (jelly roll) pan ready. I like to line mine with aluminum foil and spray it with cooking spray so that the bars easily lift out and are easy to cut.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, cream together 1 cup butter softened and sugar until light and creamy. About 2-3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, vanilla, and food coloring until combined.
  4. Add the flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Press into the bottom of the cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes until the edges start to pull away from the sides and a toothpick entered into the center comes out clean. Allow to completely cool before frosting.
  5. To make the cream cheese frosting, beat together the cream cheese and butter. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat together until smooth. Frost the top of the bars and sprinkle with your favorite sprinkles. Enjoy!
