Sugar Cookie Bars

Aren't they cute? They're sugar cookies in bar form. Well.. kind of. They taste almost like cake and like a cookie at the same time. I put less sugar in them because the frosting is very sugary and the whole thing tastes amazing! I made these for my 8 and 10 year old cousins and they had a blast decorating them with me. If you want a treat little kids will love, this is the one to make!
Sugar cookie bars
adapted from what megan's making
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. line a 9 x 13 baking pan with aluminum foil. spray with cooking spray
In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla.
In separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to wet mixture until just combined. Press into prepared pan.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and lift bars out using aluminum foil. Cool completely on wire rack before frosting.
