simply delicious

so, being that i was going to have some company this weekend i wanted to be the good little hostess and have some treats upon their arrival... now, as you might already know, i am a sucker for cupcakes, and i usually bake them up, but i was feeling a little rebellious and wanted to change it up a bit... i had seen this recipe on a fellow blogger's site, and they immediately appealed to me...
they seemed simple yet perfectly delicious... and i knew i had to make them... who doesn't love sugary buttery cookies, and bonus! slathered in awesome cream cheese frosting... hard to resist right?!

sugar cookie bars:

1 cup butter; room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda


1. cream butter and sugar until fluffy
2. add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg, then add vanilla & mix well
3. in a separate bowl combine flour, salt & soda & stir with a whisk to combine
4.add to wet mixture and mix just until combined, then spread on a greased baking sheet (use a 13 x 18 pan).
5. bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 min, until light golden brown or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely and frost.

they really were delicious... easy to make and even easier to eat :-)

happy baking everyone!


  1. Made these! Loved these! Btw, I think they look so much prettier individually frosted!

  2. they really were sooo good and not to mention super easy!

  3. Well now, those look divine! And really easy too... once the Thanksgiving-y pie season is over I may have to bake some for my family. Hm.


tell me what you're thinking :)
