Annamaria's notes for this recipe:
These bars are so yummy and hit the spot for a sweet treat. I top mine with cream cheese frosting especially concocted for this bar. This makes a lot so it's also great for a child's class, bake sale, or party! The best thing about these cookies, think about the holidays. For Valentines day add a little red food coloring to the icing, St Patricks Day, add some green, how about Halloween add some orange food coloring and you will have a huge tray of the most festive cookies, at whatever party you are at. One of my daughter's favorites!

Cream butter and sugar, until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition. Add vanilla and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine flour,salt and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
Spread into a parchment paper lined jelly roll pan(13x18).
Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes, or until golden and a toothpick comes out mostly clean. Cool completely and frost with your favorite icing. Cut into as many bars as you can.
Beat together butter and cream cheese, add vanilla and then add powdered sugar. Beat until you reach the consistency you want.
