 Ingredients List

  • Sugar Cookie Bars
  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp McCormick vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Vanilla Icing
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp McCormick vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp water or milk


1. Prepare a 9 inch square pan with parchment paper in the bottom and sides, sticking above the edges of the pan, and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
3. Mix in eggs and McCormick vanilla extract.
4. With the mixer on low speed, add flour, cornstarch, baking soda and baking powder.
5. Press cookie dough into an even layer in the pan.

8. Use parchment paper at edges of pan to lift bars out of pan.
9. To make the icing, beat the shortening and butter together until smooth.

10. Add water or milk as needed.
11. Spread icing onto bars and cut into squares.
