Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

These soft batch sugar cookie bars melt away in your mouth with each bite. The simple buttercream frosting on top gives the cake-like sugar cookie a nice amount of sweetness without being overpowering. This cookie bar is already a family favorite and I know it will be for yours as well!

Here we go friends – another day in our annual Christmas Baking Frenzy! We all know the Lofthouse sugar cookies from the large box store (I won’t mention!) that the kids LOVE am I right?? Well our Sugar Cookie Bars are the same thing, but BETTER. This is of course according to my taste tester niece and nephews! One thing I find that makes our better, besides the fact they aren’t stuffed with additives and lord knows what else, is that we turned ours into a bar cookie … which makes a TON!
