  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 10x15-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place butter and sugar into the work bowl of a large stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment; mix on medium-high speed until butter and sugar are light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Beat eggs into butter mixture one at a time, letting each egg blend in before adding the next. Beat in vanilla extract. Whisk flour, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Gradually beat flour mixture into moist ingredients, blending each portion in before adding more. Spread dough into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely in pan.
  5. Remove from pan and spread frosting over the top; cut into bars and serve.

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.

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.

Tasted like short bread not a sugar cookie, has a very dry bland taste to it. Would not make again

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!
