FROSTED SUGAR COOKIE BARS - I love making homemade frosted sugar cookie bars. Everyone in my house loves it when I make them, too! I have an easier time making cookie bars then I do regular cookies and they are so pretty with the frosting on top.

Cookie Ingredients

  • ) - Softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs

Frosting Ingredients
