Thick, chewy sugar cookie bars loaded with sprinkles and topped with a thick layer of rich butter cream frosting. So good, you won’t be able to eat just one!
I’m here to tell you that I have a major weakness for frosted sugar cookies, especially ones with sprinkles. I see sprinkles and they immediately make me happy. I LOVE them! My all-time favorite grocery store, Wegmans, which is out here on the west coast, has the most amazing frosted sugar cookies in their bakery. I do my best to NOT grocery shop while I’m hungry, because if I show up to Wegman’s on an empty stomach…well, its not gonna be pretty!
As much as I love sugar cookies, I don’t always love rolling them out and cutting with cookie cutters. So I decided to make a simple bar cookie, with the same delicious layer of thick frosting on top, loaded with sprinkles in the dough and on top of the frosting. I’m here to tell ya, these Funfetti Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars are just as good as they look!
I used my same recipe that I use for my Sugar cookie cutouts – check out my Love Bug Sugar Cookies. But instead of rolling out the dough, I added some sprinkles, and simply pressed the dough right into the bottom of a lined 9 x 13″ pan. They are just as delicious, with the amazing vanilla and almond flavor, and topped with that amazing frosting, they stay soft, moist and chewy. I’m not a big fan of dry, crisp sugar cookies – I like mine soft and chewy. 🙂
I tinted my frosting pink, because, well…I’m the lone female in my household. I don’t get much pink in my life, plus, it looks super pretty. 😉 Obviously, you can tint the frosting whatever color you choose by mixing in the food coloring when making the frosting.
When baking the bars, do your best not to over cook. I discovered the sweet spot for baking these is 19-21 minutes. Anything over 21 minutes your bars will begin to get overly crispy and browned. The 20 minute point will make sure they are cooked through, yet ensuring they are still soft and chewy.
Here’s the easy recipe for these amazingly delicious Funfetti Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars:
These bars are perfect for a bake sale, classroom treat for the kiddos, or a fun treat for just about any occasion. I’m fairly certain just about everyone loves sprinkles!
If you’re like me and love sprinkles, and sugar cookies with lots of frosting, then these Funfetti Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars are for you. I hope they bring a smile to your face just like they did to mine. Enjoy! ~Erin
