Recipe by Becky in Junction City, OR
My family loves frosted sugar cookies, but they are very time consuming to make. I have tried various sugar cookie bars recipes, but none of them tasted just right. So I made my own recipe. After many changes and revisions, here is the perfect recipe.
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1⁄2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
