Lofthouse Sugar Cookie Bars

Video coming soon to my youtube channel

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.
