Valentines Sugar Cookie Bars

These sugar cookie bars are incredibly soft. It’s like a mixture between a cookie and a cake. Eat it like a cookie or put it in a bowl with a scoop of strawberry and whipped cream. What a great Valentine’s Day treat!

Plus, I love that we add sprinkles not just on top for decoration, but in the dough. It adds a fun crunch!

Making Sugar Cookie Bars

One thing you’ll notice about these is that the layer of frosting is almost as thick as the cookie. You can never have too much icing, especially when its homemade sweet cream icing. Of course, if you want you can make it a thinner layer.

You could also change the food coloring and sprinkles to any color you want to work for a different holiday or a birthday party. You can make these Valentine sugar cookie bars your own!
