The thought came to me the other day, as I was thinking I should make some sugar cookies with my kids… how about a Sugar Cookie Bar! Genius, I know.

It would same me time in the kitchen and that’s what I need right now.

I used the same recipe- I always do! From 101 Gourmet Cookies for everyone. This cookbook was a wonderful journey to write and create, and sometimes I feel like it’s a “secret.”

Who doesn’t love a thick, soft sugar cookie with butter cream frosting and rainbow sprinkles?

Soft Sour Cream Sugar Cookies from 101 Gourmet Cookies

½ cup butter
½ cup sour cream
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-3 2/3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Cream together the butter, sour cream and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla. In a
separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. This dough

will be slightly sticky. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface about 1/3” thick.

Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Bake at 425 degrees for 4-6 minutes.

Remove cookies before they start to brown. Cool cookies completely before frosting 
with butter cream frosting.

* For the cookie bars, pat your dough into a small 1/2 sheet or brownie pan, lightly greased. Press dough evenly and bake at 425 degrees for just right about 10 minutes. Dough will be slightly soft in the center, and lightly golden on the edges. Cool completely before frosting.

 Happy Baking!
