I have a major weakness for frosted sugar cookies, especially ones with sprinkles. I see sprinkles and they immediately make me happy.  My all-time favorite grocery store, Wegmans, which is here in the Mid-Atlantic area, 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.  This is also why I love making cookie bar recipes! So I decided to make a simple bar, 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!

How these cookie bars come together:

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. 🙂

That delicious layer of frosting

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. Keep in mind, the more you add, the darker and more saturated the color becomes.

When baking the bars, be sure to not over-bake.  I discovered the sweet spot for baking these is 19-21 minutes.  Anything over 21 minutes your bars will begin to get overly crispy, browned and dry.  The 20 minute point will ensure they are cooked through, yet still soft and chewy.

Ingredients

  • 1 c. (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 3 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. rainbow sprinkles or jimmies
  • For Frosting:
  • 1 c. (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp. milk
  • Food coloring (color of your choice)
  • 1/4 c. rainbow sprinkles or jimmies

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 9 x 13" cake pan with aluminum foil and lightly spray with non-stick baking spray. Set aside.
  2. For the cookie dough: With a stand or hand mixer, cream together the butter and granulated sugar until creamy and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla and almond extract and mix until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sprinkles. Gradually add the dry ingredients (about 1 cup at a time) to the wet ingredients, stopping the mixer to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Dough will be thick and slightly stiff.
  4. Press the dough evenly into the prepared pan. Bake at 375 for 19-21 minutes until just golden brown. Do your best not to overcook, as the bars will become hard and overly crisp. (20 minutes seems to be the ideal time.) Remove from oven and let cool completely before frosting.
  5. For the Frosting: With a hand or stand mixer, cream the room temperature butter along with the vanilla and almond extract. Gradually begin adding the powdered sugar one cup at a time, stopping the mixer to scrape down the sides of the bowl. As the frosting gets stiffer, and the milk one Tbsp. at a time. Add the food coloring and mix until desired color is met. Spread the frosting over the cooled bars, and add the remaining sprinkles to the top of the frosting. For easy cutting, refrigerate the bars until just before cutting and serving.

  10. HI! Can you make ahead of time, refrigerate overnight and cut in morning? Or would you cut at night and store in air tight container?
    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says
      Hi Jamie! You can definitely make these ahead of time. Refrigerate overnight and cut in the morning. This will keep the bars from becoming dry. Simply cover the bars in the pan, and cut when you're ready to serve. Enjoy! ~Erin
