Sugar Cookie Bars

Sugar Cookie Bars

Makes 20-24 Bars


2 ½ Cups Flour

½ tsp Baking Powder

½ tsp Salt

½ Cup Butter, Softened

1 Cup Sugar

1 Egg

1 ½ Tbsp Sour Cream

1 tsp Vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.

With discarded butter wrapper or cooking spray, grease a 9x13 pan.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.

Add eggs and mix well.

Add sour cream and vanilla and mix until completely blended.

Slowly add the flour mixture and stir until well combined.

Gently press the dough into the greased baking dish. Buttering your hands will cut down on the stickiness.

Bake at 375 degrees for 17-20 minutes until edges become lightly golded.

Allow to cool completely.


½ Cup Butter, Softened

4 Cups Powdered Sugar, Sifted

¼ Cup Half and Half (Any type of milk will work but the Half and Half makes a creamier frosting)

1 tsp Vanilla

Pinch of Salt

Optional: Several Drops of Food Coloring

In a medium bowl, cream together butter, powdered sugar and half and half until light and fluffy.

Stir in vanilla and salt. Mix well.

Add food coloring a couple of drops at a time until desired color is reached.

Frost the cooled cookies.

Cut into bars.

My name is Jodie and I am a wife and mother of four. I love to bake, craft, travel, exercise, hike and explore new things. I'm excited to use the SHOTBOX to highlight my creations and to show you how this simple tool can bring light and life to your passions too.

The SHOTBOX is a collapsible tabletop studio that uses high powered LEDs to create a perfectly lit “micro-studio” environment. They are now taking pre-orders to be delivered for Christmas.
