“Oh YEAH!” Is all there is to say about these little yummies!

Have you ever heard of Lofthouse cookies? Well, these bars are like that, only way better! Yum-a-lishish!!!! (Sorry Lofthouse!)

The frosting on these little babies are beyond-belief good!

I found this recipe at Just Because Katie, and they are, seriously, a must try!

Sugar Cookie Bars with Cream-Cheese Butter Frosting

1 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
5 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
parchment paper

*(Notes in parentheses are mine, just like this one. :))

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. (I beat the butter and sugar together, for about 5 minutes, until it was really light and fluffy.)  Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg. Add vanilla extract and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and stir with a wire whisk to mix well. Add to wet mixture and mix just until combined. Spread dough onto a greased (I used parchment paper lined) 13 x 18 baking sheet. (I like parchment, ’cause there is, absolutely, no sticking. JMO. 😉) Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until light golden brown or until a toothpick comes out clean. The bars won’t look done so do the toothpick test. Cool completely and then frost.

Cream-Cheese Butter Frosting…
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
5 cups powdered sugar
1 tbsp. milk
food coloring (if desired)
sprinkles (of course)

Combine butter and cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla extract and salt. Add powdered sugar in 1 cup increments until combined, then add milk and mix until smooth and spreading consistency. Spread over cooled sugar cookie bars.

This frosting is to die for! When I made it, I only had 4 cups of powdered sugar, so I just omitted the milk.  Let me tell you, I could have eaten the whole bowl, with a spoon, it was that good!


Have a happy week!
