Sugar Cookie Bars and a Giveaway!

I think I found a new favorite treat.  Seriously.  These were awesome.  I didn't eat as much as I wanted, because of this silly diet I'm on, but I got enough of a taste that every time I walked by them, my mind was screaming, "EAT THEM!  GET YOU A BAR AND ENJOY THAT SUCKER!  YOU DESERVE IT!  YOU CAN RUN IT OFF LATER!"  I ended up taking half over to my in laws to share with the grandkids.  I needed them out of my site! 

These would make a cute Valentine's neighbor gift but with cute Valentine's Day sprinkles.  I think I will be doing that for mine. 



Sugar Cookie Bars
1 c. unsalted butter, softened
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
5 c. flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

Cream your butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add your eggs one at a time mixing well after each one.  Add vanilla.  Add your dry ingredients and mix until well combined.  Press into a greased 13x18 in sheet pan.  A big cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.  Check them and DO NOT OVER BAKE THEM!  Let it cool completely before frosting.

Frosting Ingredients
1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. shortening
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
4 c. powdered sugar
5 Tbsp milk or until you get your desired thickness

Beat your butter and shortening until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and then powdered sugar.  Mix until well combined.  Add in milk 1 Tbsp at a time until your reach the thickness that you want.  Spread over your cooled sugar cookie bars and then sprinkle with your favorite sprinkles right after so they stick to the icing.  Cut and serve.
