Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

Here is another outstanding recipe from Beantown Baker. My Mom made these while I was visiting my family this summer, so I got to just take pictures and enjoy the deliciousness. These sugar cookie bars are soooo yummy and the best part is that they use ingredients that you (most likely) already have at home. If you are a fan of Ice House Frosted Sugar Cookies, you will LOVE these! They make a huge batch, perfect for a potluck or family get together, like we used them for. You can use whatever sprinkles you want depending on the season, holiday, or your mood! :)
