Hi friends! How have you been? We are sure enjoying spring here & that means I’m baking all sorts of goodies. I’m not sure why, but the sunshine & slightly warmer temps give me the urge to bake.

The whole family was really craving sugar cookies one weekend, but I was really tight on time. I needed an alternative to mixing, rolling, cutting, baking & then frosting so many individual cookies. But I knew that making sugar cookie bars was quick & easy, which made them the perfect dessert for us.

I love these because I can mix the dough, transfer it to one single baking pan & bake like one giant rectangular cookie. Then when it comes to decorating it is as easy as frosting a sheet cake. Just spread it on, sprinkle on your mini m&m’s & cut.
