Sugar Cookie Bars

sugar cookie bars

I can remember the first time I made these sugar cookie bars and posted them on my old blog.

I’m a huge fan of sugar cookies, but I keep my recipe to myself. It’s one I just don’t share. Maybe someday I will.

Doubtful.

I prefer my sugar cookies to be soft, chewy, and flavorful without the chalky flavor that some sugar cookies have.

But… I’ll admit… if I’m not in the mood to spend a good amount of time in the kitchen but want cookies, sugar cookies just aren’t my choice. They make a mess, some recipes require chilling time, and they require being frosted.

Just being real. You’d never know that frosting cookies isn’t my most favorite thing to do.

So now when you’re in the mood for a delicious sugar cookie, you can make these in a flash and they’re delish!

and….. you’re welcome.
