Tday is our 1st 85 degree weather day in a looooong time, so what do I do? Bake of course. Nothing like heating up the oven on a day like today. Charlie didn’t even try to “help”. He just layer in front of an ac vent. I made Lofthouse sugar cookie bars. A homemade version of the brand of cookies you see in grocery stores. They are for a friend from work who”s birthday is coming up. And he loves sugar cookies, so voila! Sugar cookie vars!
Cookie bar ingredients – 1 cup butter (softened to room temperature), 8 oz cream cheese (softened to room temperature, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 egg, 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/3 tsp baking soda.
Directions – preheat oven to 350. cream butter and cream cheese. Mix in sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Spread in 9×13 pan that has been sprayed with baking spray. Bake 20 minutes (there will be lightly golden spots on top). Cool completely.
Frosting ingredients – 3/4 cup butter (softened to room temperaturel, 3 cups powdered sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 3-4 tbs heavy cream or milk.
Combine butter and powdered sugar. Add vanilla and cream/milk. Beat to desired consistency.
