Left alone with a sugar cookie in any form will always,alwaysprove to be my undoing.

It’s no surprise that I’ve devised several ways over the years to get a sugar cookie fix without having to roll and cut out the dough. I mean, I’ll always love a good, classic sugar cookie recipe, but when time (and sanity) are at risk, there are definitely easier and just as yummy ways to get sugar cookies into your life.


Easy Sugar Cookie Recipes


And then, of course, these easy sugar cookie bars. They might be my favorite of them all.

The batter for these sugar cookie bars is a direct knockoff from one of myfavorite classic sugar cookie recipes。面团是下一级美味(在饼干中and在这些酒吧)。

And it’s ridiculously easy. A one-bowl wonder.

This is important

The key to a really soft and tender sugar cookie bar is toonly mix the dough until the flour is just combined。Over mixing means the sugar cookie bars may not be quite as soft and tender.

Super Quick Baking Time

这些糖饼干棒具有超快速烘烤时间。In my oven, ten minutes max

You can tell from the picture below that I over baked them just slightly (blaming the children who all of a sudden needed help on their math homework, and in the end, I was no help to them at all #commoncoremathprobs).

You really don’t want hardly any color around the edges.

Glorious frosting

While the bars cool, whip up the frosting. It’s even easier than the sugar cookie dough.

  • butter
  • 糖粉
  • vanilla
  • milk or cream (go for the cream)

If your butter is properly softened and your powdered sugar not overly clumpy, you can live life on the edge like I do and just throw everything into a bowl and go to town with the mixer.

Sprinkle the guts out of the frosted sugar cookie bars.

And then make an exit plan quickly (for you or the bars). Because once you cut into them, these easy sugar cookie bars are not easy to resist. At all.

Heck, you could even color the dough a funky shade to match the holiday.

The options are endless.

Next time you don’t know what to bake for your office party or neighborhood potluck ortake-in meal,我希望这些容易的糖饼干酒吧想到。

They have saved me on so many occasions.

Including thetwo timesin the last year or so I forgot I was on sugar cookie duty for my kids’ classroom parties and literally, blessedly remembered with only about 45 minutes to spare. (Ahem, please note I’m not even mentioning the other time I forgot completely.)

I had these sugar cookie bars made, frosted, and to the school on time. With only a little bit of frosting in my hair (and a whole lot of gratitude for my freezer which helped cool the baked sugar cookie bars fast).
