These cookie bars are made from those 3-lb. tubs of already made cookie dough, which I purchase from our Festival Foods Grocery Store, and placed them in the freezer to use for another day. I unthaw the dough, and baked these bars with 2-lbs. of the sugar cookie dough.

How To Make sugar cookie bars

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • 2
    Spread 2 pounds of cookie dough in an ungreased (15-1/2" x 10" x 1") baking sheet. (I used my hands to pat down and spread the dough evenly onto the baking sheet.)
  • 3
    Place baking sheet in oven, and bake for 18 minutes. (The bars will look lightly golden in color when done.)
  • 4
    Cool bars completely before frosting them. (I didn't use all the frosting. I had a couple tablespoons leftover.)
  • 5
    Immediately decorate the bars with your favorite colored sprinkles.
  • 6
    Let bars set for a few hours before cutting them into squares.
  • 7
    These bars kept well for several days in a cake pan sealed with a plastic covered lid. (A pan which I purchased from Walmart.)
