Share These Sugar Cookie Bars With Someone You Love

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen11 Comments

Two magical things happened this Christmas. The first was someone dropped off a plate of sugar cookie bars that were so good they left me wondering how I had made it to the ripe old age of 40ish and never had one before?! The second magical thing was the gift of brand new baking sheets. Now since the alignment of these two magical, but separate things occurred, a recipe has brewing in my mind. And today, I am super excited to share it with all of you!

A quick cursory look over on one of my fave places- Pinterest, left me a bit curfuddled with how may different recipes there were. Mostly, because, I do enjoy baking, but I have limited time and if a recipe has like 10 trillion steps, then I am out. Asking me to sift is not going to happen, so I took a look and created my own JENerally Informed spin on this new personal favorite!

I was able to cut out 15 evenly sized sugar cookie bar sizes, and then topped each sugar cookie bar with a heart gummy.

Because of the parchment paper, serving each of these bars is so easy!

  1. YUM! I know I’ve had shortbread cookie bars, but not sure if I’ve ever had sugar cookie bars. These look so delicious that my teeth are actually hurting in anticipation. Wish I could reach through that screen now..
