No one likes cookies more then I do.  Whenever I come across cake, donuts, pie, or ice cream I can easily pass it up without a second glance.  However, when it comes to cookies I have a hard time saying no.

I’m pretty picky when it comes to cookies because of how much I love them.  If I bite into a cookie and it isn’t good I’ll throw it away. I’m not out to eat an inferior cookie, especially when I make so many good ones but I’m always willing to try a cookie.

My favorite type of cookies are ones that are soft and delicious.  It’s hard to make a good soft cookie because sometimes they are under baked or they crumble because of how soft they are.  There’s a science to what the ingredients need to be and how long the cookie needs to bake for.

Everything you need to make soft and chewy Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

In the case of these sugar cookie bars the bars come out of the oven looking slightly under cooked but they finish cooking as they rest.  The cookie feels firm to the touch but is soft and melts in your mouth.  To top it off there’s a delicious buttercream frosting spread over the top!

The fun thing about these bars is that you can color the frosting for any occasion.  I made the frosting pink for Valentine’s Day but I could have made it green for St. Patrick’s Day or yellow for Easter.  The possibilities are endless!

I ended up taking these cookies to work and they were gobbled up quickly.  The cookies are rich, soft, and totally tasty.  I actually like putting them in the refrigerator to firm the cookie and the frosting up a bit.  Plus they taste really great cold.
