Christmas Sugar Cookie Bars Recipe
⋆ Ingredients ⋆
– Flour – Salt – Baking soda – Salted butter – Sugar – Eggs – Almond extract or clear vanilla extract – Green food coloring – Red food coloring
Use an electric mixer to cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time.
Combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture until it is just combined.
Separate the dough into two small bowls. In one, stir in 6 drops of green food coloring. If you want a darker shade, add more food until it’s mixed in well.
Repeat with the remaining dough and red food coloring, spreading the colored dough on top of the green dough.
To make a tie-dye effect, place large spoonfuls of dough randomly in the pan.
Once you have added all the dough to the pan, evenly distribute it without over-blending the colors.
Bake for 22-28 minutes. Test at 20 minutes with a toothpick in the center and again at 25 minutes. When the toothpick comes out clean, the sugar cookie bars are done cooking.
To make the frosting, cream together the confectioners’ sugar and butter until smooth. Spread over cooled sugar cookie bars. Top with sprinkles.
Cut, serve and devour!
