I took these Fluffy Sugar Cookie Cake Bars to a church potluck and they were gone so fast! Fluffy Sugar Cookie Cake Bars are soft and tender with a sweet buttercream frosting! These cookie cake bars are a mixture between a cookie and a cake. Soft and fluffy, yet holds together like a cookie.

It’s been far too long since I’ve shared something sweet with you on the blog. I’ve been in easy dinner mode for the past month and I haven’t even had time to think about dessert.

Who am I kidding, dessert is always on the menu!

These Fluffy Sugar Cookie Cake Bars start out in a large baking sheet and only take a few minutes to bake!

The cookie dough for these bars is quickly made up in a stand mixer and then pressed out into a half sheet baking pan. I love how you don’t have to individually shape cookies for this recipe, which makes them so much quicker to make!

This pink fluffy icing is perfectly sweet and delicious!

Then there is the fluffy pink frosting that is spread over the top of the bars.

I used just a pinch of this Rose Icing color to tint the buttercream icing pink, but you can tint the icing any color that you want.

The pink icing on these cookie bars reminds me of those soft and fluffy Lofthouse Sugar Cookies. Adding the sprinkles reminds me of those frosted animal crackers!

I took these Fluffy Sugar Cookie Cake Bars to a church activity last week and they were loved by all!

The trick with these bars is to make sure you don’t over bake them. They only need between 12-15 minutes in the oven and then let them cool completely before frosting. If you bake too long they will become more stiff and not so soft and fluffy.

Scale

Ingredients

For the Bars:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda

For the Icing:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 to 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 to 4 tbsp heavy cream
  • a touch of Rose Icing Color (pink)
  • Sprinkles, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat a half sheet (13″x18″) with non-stick baking spray and set aside.

For the Cookie Bars:

  1. Cream the butter, sugar, vanilla extract and almond extract together in the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment. You can also use a hand mixer if needed. Gradually add in the eggs, one at a time and beat until mixed.
  2. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until a dough forms. Transfer dough to the prepared baking sheet and press into an even layer. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes then let cool completely.

For the Icing:

  1. Beat the butter, salt and extracts in the bowl of your stand mixer (or use a bowl and hand mixer), until light and fluffy. Add in the powdered sugar and turn on low speed until the powdered sugar has been incorporated, then increase speed to medium. Gradually add in the heavy cream until desired consistency is reached.
  2. If using icing color, add just a touch (a little goes a long way), then mix into icing. Adjust amount if needed. Spread the icing over the cooled bars and decorate with sprinkles if desired. Keep bars covered (no need to refrigerate, but you can if you want). Enjoy!

  1. Aside from its colorful appearance, these cake bars will be in stardom if everything will properly fall into their proper places. Let us just hope for the best then. My only hope for now is for them to be as delicious as they look like.
