We love these Sugar Cookie Bars! They are so delicious and easy to make. They are perfect for when you need to bring a dessert to a family party or get together. They taste just like your favorite Sugar Cookie but without all the work of rolling them out!

Now, I am not a big fan of frosting. I like to have just a thin little line of frosting to add a little bit of flavor to my Sugar Cookie Bar. So when I make them, I only add a little bit of frosting. But I realize that there are some of you who are frosting lovers. You can pile the frosting as thick as you want to make it just right for you and your taste preferences.

Go ahead and whip some of these up…I think you are really going to like them. Tonight is a great night to test them out…even if you don’t have anyone to share them with.
