Every year for Christmas, Laurie and I like to add something new to our Christmas baking.  We always bake our standards (Sherry Cake, English Toffee, Christmas Cookies), but then we find one new thing to add.  This has led to some nice discoveries (Apple Doodle Cookies), and some real stinkers (Cathedral Marshmallow Bars).  This year we decided to try these Christmas Sugar Cookie Bars.   The recipe for the bar cookies is different than our beloved Sugar Cookie Recipe but these Christmas Sugar Cookie Bars turned out DELICIOUS too. And they were so easy to make.  These will definitely be added into our normal baking rotation.

How to make Christmas Sugar Cookie Bars

You will need:

Cream butter and sugar for Sugar Cookie Bar dough

Mix softened butter and sugar in mixing bowl until fluffy.

Cream butter and sugar for Sugar Cookie Bar dough

Add vanilla and eggs and mix.

Sugar Cookie bar dough

Add dry ingredients.  (P.S. if you are someone who likes the taste of cookie dough and isn’t afraid of raw eggs, this dough tastes AMAZING!!!)

Sugar Cookie Bar dough on a prepared cookie sheet

Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  You can skip this step and grease the cookie sheet instead but the parchment paper will really help the edges of the cookies to not get brown during the baking process.   Pour all of the dough out onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Pressing the Sugar Cookie Bar dough into the cookie sheet

Press the dough down onto the cookie sheet.  This was a pretty big cookie sheet so we didn’t use the whole thing.  I greased my hands with butter to make the molding process a little easier. The dough is soft and sticky so it is a little tricky to get the dough evenly distributed in the cookie sheet.  In this picture the dough is about 3/4″ high and it rose to about 1″ high during the baking process.

Sugar Cookie Bars out of the oven

Bake the Christmas Sugar Cookie Bars in a 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.  Do not over bake the cookies.  It will not come out of the oven a deep golden brown – in fact, it might look a little un-done but it is not.  Use a toothpick to test it, if the toothpick comes out clean it is done.  If you bake these too long they will be dry.

Frosting the Christmas Sugar Cookie Bars

Let the cookie bar cool completely and then frost them.  We used our super delicious Buttercream Frosting (recipe can be found here.)  We colored the frosting with Red food coloring and added some Red, White and Green Christmas sprinkles on the top.
