Ingredients

For the Sugar Cookie Bars:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 TBS sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Strawberry Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup pureed strawberries
  • 5 TBS butter softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 TBS milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine your flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together your butter and sugar for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add in your egg, sour cream and vanilla and mix till combined.
  • Slowly add in your flour mixture while stirring until everything is combined. (The dough will be crumbly)
  • Press the batter into a greased 9×13 baking dish and spread it out evenly with your hands or a rubber spatula.
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes or until edges just barely start to turn golden.
  • Allow to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, puree your strawberries. Heat puree over medium low heat in a small sauce pan for about 15 minutes, or however long it takes the puree to condense half way. (So you'll want to end up with 1/4 cup)
  • Place in your freezer and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Mix together your strawberry puree and your butter.
  • Add in your powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract and mix everything together till smooth. (Add a little more milk or a little more powdered sugar if needed till you get a spreadable consistency).
  • Spread frosting evenly over cooled sugar cookie bars.
  • Cut into squares and serve.
