Sugar Cookie Bars

These are the awesomeness of a sugar cookie in a convenient bar! A winner!


1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch sea salt
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
5 tablespoons milk
Food coloring, as desired

Oven to 375 degrees
Line a 10x15 baking sheet with parchment paper
Cream the butter and sugar on medium high until light and fluffy(2 min).  Slow the roll on the mixer to medium and add the eggs 1 at a time and mix after cracking each one. Add the vanilla.  Whisk together, in another bowl, flour, salt, baking soda, mix well, please.  Slowing again, to low, add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until all combined.  Using a rubber spoon evenly spread the cookie dough into the pan.  Bake about 15 minutes, don't over bake.  A tester should come out clean.  Let them cool completely.
For the yummy frosting, beat the butter until light and fluffy(we've done this before...2 minutes).  Add the vanilla and salt and mix well.  Slowing the mixer to low add the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.  Add the milk until smooth.  Add the color of your choice and frost and decorate the bars as you wish! Be creative! Cut and Eat!  Enjoy~
