  • the best sugar cookie bars with buttercream icing

    I can’t be trusted with a working oven, a little sugar and butter. Especially if there’s anything to celebrate. You all loved my sugar cookie cake so much, I decided to make it in bar form. That’s right, melt-in-your-mouth frosted sugar cookie bars. Thick, indulgent and oh so good.

    When you have a really great cookie dough recipe, it’s hard not to imagine it in other forms beyond a cookie. I love using mine to make cookie cobblers, cookie cakes, and cookie bars, because why not? Each has it’s own incredible texture and consistency. When you put my melt in your mouth sugar cookie dough into a 9×9 or 9×13 pan {depending on how ridiculously thick you want them}, they are so moist, chewy and delectable. Just one bite and you’ll see why Chris can’t stop at one. I’ve been known to munch on them for breakfast. That’s acceptable, right?

    I’m excited to share my melt in your mouth sugar cookie bars with buttercream icing recipe today to benefit Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget going to all childhood cancer combined, I wanted to get involved.
