Sugar Cookie Bars
This little beauty is our favorite! I'm bringing this recipe to the forefront again due to it's popularity. AND It's all I can do to stop myself from making more.....
This scrumptious delight combines all I love and try to duplicate in a sugar cookie; thick cookie, moist and chewy and a great tasting dough - Pair this with your favorite frosting and it's perfection!
1 cup shortening or butter
2 c sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 T vanilla
2 tsp almond extract
4 c flour
Grease jelly roll pan, preheat oven to 375. Mix all ingredients and spread evenly in pan. Bake for 15-16 minutes until slightly browned
Wait till mostly cooled and spread with your favorite frosting.
I was in a hurry so used a can of whipped cream cheese frosting, added a tsp of almond flavoring, and colored it to my son's request. (blue!) and added sprinkles.
I like shortening better than butter for a more "chewy" texture instead of "cakey" These are fast and easy, and always popular! Yum!
