Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

I don't know if there are many things I love more than a good sugar cookie with frosting and sprinkles. In hopes of Texas Rangers' victory last night I made cookie bars. Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars, to be exact.  I'm glad I didn't go all out and make blue and red frosting because, last night, our dear Rangers LOST. Ugh. So, to console the office I brought these tasty treats for everyone to drown their sorrows in.... so far everyone is holding up well ;-) 

Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars
(from A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll)


1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda

Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Meanwhile, mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.  Add the vanilla to the creamed mixture and then slowly add the dry ingredients.

Press into a greased 13 x 18 inch pan and bake at 375F for 10-15 minutes.

Cool and frost.


1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
4 cups powdered sugar
5 tablespoons of milk
food coloring (optional)
sprinkles (optional)

In a mixing bowl, beat the shortening and butter until creamy.  Add the vanilla and powdered sugar.  Gradually add the 5 tablespoons of milk until you reach your desired constancy.

For the sprinkles, I found that they rolled all over the place.  To help this, place a sheet of plastic wrap over the frosted sugar cookies and gently press the sprinkles into the frosting.

Chill and cut Pin It
