Sugar Cookie Bars

Happy MONDAY, everyone! 
The day you're starting your diet. 
The day I'm going to ruin your diet.  
It's really okay, though, honestly.
You can start your diet tomorrow. 
Or next Monday. 
Or whenever you won't be eating these sugar cookie bars still. 
I love sugar cookies.
Doesn't everyone love sugar cookies?
I don't love the hours long process of making sugar cookies.
Am I alone in that one? I can't be. 
I can't be.
So you'll love this, too! 

Basically you're making a sugar cookie dough and smooshing the heck out of it all over a baking sheet and baking it before slathering the top with frosting. I mean it's perfect, it really is. You get the "aww cute" factor with the "mmm yummy" factor you want with sugar cookies but in about 20 minutes instead of a few hours!


Awwww CUTE!!!
