sugar cookie bars
I made sugar cookie bars for Dieter's Kindermusik recital which was a week or so ago.
I had pinned this recipe a long-ish time ago but just got around to making it. I love having the opportunity to share a sweet recipe and not have a lot of leftovers hanging around. These were good. The base is a crunchy bar, not too sweet, and the frosting is very sweet and quite nice (if you are in the mood for frosting). I love how festive these look with the sprinkles.
Some notes . . .
:: the recipe makes a huge batch. I halved it and still had an entire 9x13" pan.
:: the frosting calls for shortening, but I used all butter.
:: I baked these until they were slightlly colored on the top, but next time I will try underbaking them just a bit for a less crunchy bar.
:: this is ultimately a plain cookie but just what is needed, I think, for a festive potluck.
You can find the recipe here.
