Soft Sugar Cookie Bars

Aleta Hepp


These taste similar to the Lofthouse cookies you buy at the grocery store, only much cheaper & you get a lot more cookies. They do not taste exactly like them, but close enough that my family loves them.

  • 3In separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix to combine.
  • 4Spread mixture into prepared pan, it will be sticky (wetting your hands a bit helps keep more in the pan & less on your hands).
