The Cookie Base

Butter Cream Frosting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper.
For the cookie base: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla until fluffy. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt.)
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until just combined.
Spread your dough into your prepared baking pan and press it down into an even layer.
Bake for 20- 25 mins or until the edges are golden brown.
While the cookie base is cooking, prepare the frosting.
Stir all of the ingredients together until smooth and fluffy. Note, be sure to add the milk slowly until your desired consistency is achieved.
Once your cookie base is cooked and cooled, add your frosting.
Optional, top with sprinkles. Enjoy!

    Dry crumbly and tasteless. I did not frost them, but these were like the base of a bar cookie without the good stuff.

      I'm sorry to hear your Sugar Cookie bars turned out dry and crumbly. This recipe has been tested many times and that should not have happened :(
