Sugar Cookie Bars are one of our most favorite desserts. We have made them a couple of times for the blog. This time we did something special and added pretty spring colored sprinkles to the the cookie bars. Wow do they look pretty. And as always, they taste amazing. This is a great dessert idea for Easter, a spring brunch or even Mother’s Day.
How to Make Confetti Sprinkles Sugar Cookie Bars
Mix softened butter and sugar in mixing bowl until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs and mix. 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!!!)
Add 1/2 cup of sprinkles to the dough. We made our own sprinkles for our Confetti Sprinkles Sugar Cookie Bars. You will find all the directions to make your own right here.
Gently mix the sprinkles into the dough.
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. Press the dough down onto the cookie sheet. 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. You want the dough to be about 3/4″ high. It will rise to about 1″ high during the baking process. Bake the Confetti Sprinkles 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.
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 pink food coloring.
Finally we added some of the same sprinkles on the frosting – don’t they look pretty. We especially love how you can see the sprinkles in the cookie bars.
These Confetti Sprinkles Sugar Cookie Bars are super delicious and a unique take on the traditional frosted sugar cookie. We will definitely be making these again and again!
