– Unsalted Butter – Cream Cheese – Granulated Sugar – Vanilla extract – All-purpose flour – Salt – Egg – Confectioner’s sugar – Lemon Juice – Milk – Food coloring
Preheat the oven
Preheat the oven to 350° Grease and line a 13x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Leave two sides hanging over for easy removal.
Combine the wet ingredients
Combine the unsalted butter and cream cheese together in a mixing bowl. Beat the granulated sugar until creamy. Beat in 1 egg and the vanilla extract.
Add the cookie dough to dish
Place the cookie dough inside the baking dish and spread evenly across the dish. (To make this easier, place parchment paper on top of the dough and use a glass to spread the dough from the center of the dish to the edges.
Bake for 35-40 minutes. The edges should be lightly browned and the center set. If desired, bake for a few minutes extra at a time if you want firmer sugar cookie bars.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 1 hour before frosting.
