Bar cookies are such a simple style to prepare & make a dessert ideal to serve when entertaining. Classic Lemon Bars & Bourbon Brookies are two of the most popular flavors of bar cookies.

Bar cookies may be cut into all sorts of shapes ranging from squares & rectangles to diamonds. Classic Sugar Cookie Bars offer a neutral addition to a collection of sweets as the look & taste pair well with a variety of flavors ranging from chocolate to spice. The Essential Guide To Six Classic Cookie Styles features a brief overview of the characteristics of each so be certain to have a look when choosing the right fit for your needs. Learn how to make a crowd pleasing cookie that is ideal to serve all year long.

makes about 3 dozen

1 cup softened butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
Powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch quarter sheet with parchment paper allowing 2-inches to extend over the sides. Cream the butter & the sugar in an electric stand mixer on Medium-Low speed until light & airy, about 3 minutes. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the bowl sides. Add the egg, the vanilla bean paste & the almond extract then blend until combined. Whisk together the flour, the baking powder & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend until combined. Portion the cookie dough into the prepared pan using a standard-size cookie scoop. Press the dough flat & evenly into the pan using your fingers. Be certain to fill any crevasses, if necessary. Bake 27 to 30 minutes. The center will appear puffed & set. The cookie will settle back into the pan as it cools. Gently loosen the edges of the cookie from the pan sides & lift the parchment paper from the pan. Slice 1/4-inch away from the perimeter of the cookie for tidy edges. Cut into 32 bars. Dust with powdered sugar.

How To Make Classic Sugar Cookie Bars

Classic Sugar Cookie Bars may be served with a simple dusting of powdered sugar, drizzled with glaze or spread with icing, if desired. The bars may be prepared in advance, sliced & frozen up to one month to make entertaining effortless. Remove them a few hours before needed to allow ample time for thawing.
