These come to you courtesy of my friend Melanie...
if you like sugar cookies like I do, you will thoroughly LOVE this recipe...
but I warn you, they are super naughty when dieting...
I made them on Mother's Day where no calories were ever counted...
(well, they were but these weren't a part of it)
Sugar Cookie Bars:
Cream together until fluffy...
1 cup butter, room temperature soft
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, room temperature soft
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
Mix well and press into a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until very lightly browned on the edges. Frost with buttercream frosting.
10 2/3 Tbsp. soft butter
1 tsp. vanilla
4 Tbsp. milk
4 cups powdered sugar
Beat all ingredients until fluffy and add desired food coloring.
Note: I use about 10 Tbsp. butter and I also add Almond extract for more flavor. Love Love Love!!!
