Raise your hand if you are like me and you just kind of “throw things together” sometimes? That’s basically what happened when I started to make these amazing Easter Sugar Cookie Bars.
It all got started this weekend when I was roaming through Pinterest and I came across this amazing frosted sugar cookie bar recipe from The Baker Upstairs. They looked really good…I mean CRAZY good…but I wanted to change them up a bit.
With the help of a very special 8 year old, we made a few modifications to take these amazing sugar cookie bars to the next level.
Easter Sugar Cookie Bars
- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup butter (melted)
- 1 1/2 Tbsp sour cream
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 11 oz. bag Ghiradelli white chocolate chips
- 1 bag of chocolate M&Ms
- Sprinkles (because we all could use a few sprinkles, right?)
Step 1: Heat your oven to 375 and line a 9 x 13 dish with foil, and coat with a non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2: Add the butter and sugar to a mixer and stir until creamy.
Step 3: Add egg, egg white, sour cream, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Mix well.
Step 4: Add in flour, salt and baking powder and mix well.
Step 5: Add in white chocolate chips and mix well.
Step 6: Pour mixture onto 9 x 13 dish and smooth out. Cover the top with M&Ms and Sprinkles, then bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes.
Step 7: Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack for 1 hour. Cut into bars and serve.
This has to be one of the most awesome recipes EVER!! I am honestly surprised I was able to keep enough of these Easter Sugar Cookie Bars around to take pictures of.
This is such a fun recipe, and the kids all like to help when it comes to adding the chocolate, M&Ms, and Sprinkles. Enjoy!
