It’s been years since I made Peppermint Sugar Cookie Bars, which is sad, because they’re one of the most Pinterest pinned recipes on my entire blog. Every day people pin it to their baking inspiration boards, putting it on their list of recipes to try. And here I am completely forgetting all about it in my quest to bake everything ever. Well no more! It’s time for those Sugar Cookie Bars to take another spin around the block!
I love the simplicity of these bars. Perfectly sweet, delectably vanilla, with a cool hint of peppermint: it’s all the fantastic flavors of your favorite cut out sugar cookies, without all the fuss. And none of the royal icing. Dress it up in festive sprinkles and colors for the holidays, or trade out the peppermint for lemon, almond, vanilla, or any other of your favorite extracts and enjoy these for every occasion, all year long!
I’ve really got to start delving into the depths of my past recipes. Who knows what other gems I’ve forgotten about along the way! And somebody please remind me not to wait another 3 years to make these bars again. That’s just too long.
