This is a delicious, quick and easy recipe. I followed the clearly written directions using a 10" x 15" pan lined with parchment. I baked for 30 minutes. When cutting the cookies, I made 2" x 2" squares which resulted in 36 squares. This cut resulted in the cookies looking like cake squares and they are NOT cake squares but cookies. Next time I prepare, I will cut into 2" x 4" bars and should have a yield of 18 bars. The icing I used is the recipe for Buttercream Icing by Sharon Gerstman here on the AR site. Thank you Wicked Creations for your recipe and I am glad to see it has received kitchen approval by AR.
Tasted like short bread not a sugar cookie, has a very dry bland taste to it. Would not make again
I made this recipe when it was still a Personal Recipe. ~ Simple and delicious bar cookie. I made mine in a jelly roll pan that I just sprayed with Pam®. I didn't have any problems getting them to release from the pan. I took these to Girls Night Out and they were enjoyed by all and I was asked by several for the recipe. This recipe comes in handy when you need something quick. It makes a lot and goes far. Thanks for posting WickedCreations.
Liked the flavor. I have now made these four different times. For this last batch that I made Saturday, I doubled the amount of vanilla. These are wonderful. I am glad I can give it five stars.
Yum. Making this now. Inspired by the bakery @ my local grocery store today, where they were giving out samples of sugar cookie bar topped with cream cheese frosting, fresh apple and drizzled with caramel sauce. Made a few adjustments based on the reviews. Increased the flavorings by adding .5 tsp maple and butter flavors. Swapped 1/2 cup of sugar for dark brown. I used fresh whole wheat flour for 3 cups, and 2 cups AP flour. It smells amazing, has a fluffy texture, almost like a blonde brownie. Can't wait to frost it and top it for dessert tonight.
I followed recipe exactly. Was very easy. Did not stick to pan. Cut nicely. I made a raspberry butter cream frosting that was delicious on these.
1/4 cup of seedless raspberry jam melted,
1 cup butter softened, mix well. Add confectioners sugar. About 2 cups. I did not measure. Just by feel. 1/2 tsp. raspberry extract, TBS milk. Mixed well. Spread on cookies before cutting into squared. Was a beautiful rich pink color. Perfect for Valentines day or Easter.
I noted that one reviewer felt these were bland. So, I decreased the White Sugar by 1/2 C and replaced it with Maple Sugar. I also replaced the Vanilla with Maple Syrup. I frosted with store bought frosting and dusted with a little more Maple sugar. De-Light-Full! You could probably also make the original recipe and replace the Vanialla with Peppermint Extract and dust with crushed Candy Canes. I'll do this one again for sure!
