More About This Recipe

  • Sugar cookies are a holiday dessert tray classic, but these sugar cookie bars make them easier and even more festive than before. Instead of worrying about cookie cutters and frosting individual cookies, this recipe simply entails combining broken up refrigerated sugar cookie dough with holiday sprinkles and pressing the mixture into a 13x9-inch pan. While the sugar cookie bars cool, whip up an easy classic frosting with only four basic ingredients. Be sure to let the bars cool completely before frosting so the frosting doesn’t melt into the dough. Adding the sprinkles to the top of these holiday sugar cookie bars takes them to the next level and is the perfect job for the kids to get in on the action.
