SUGAR COOKIE BARS
SUGAR COOKIE BARS Cookies: 4 eggs, well beaten 2 cups white sugar 1 cup butter 4 cups white flour 2 tsp baking soda 2 tsp cream of tartar 1 tsp vanilla 1/2 tsp nutmeg Cream together the eggs, vanilla, sugar, and butter. Sift together dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture. Mix well. Spray a * jelly roll pan with baking spray and spread cookie dough evenly to all sides. You can always sprinkle the top with flour and use a rolling pin like I did! *A jelly roll pan is 17-1/2' x 12-1/2' x 1' deep. It is a baking sheet with sides so the batter does not slip off. A lot of people use jelly roll pans as cookie sheets. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or so, until top is golden. Icing: 6 cups icing sugar (powder sugar) (can add a bit more to stiffen icing) 1 cup butter 1/2 milk 2 tsp almond extract several drops of food coloring Whip together icing ingredients until light and fluffy. Spread evenly over cooled cookie bars. Slice cookie bars and serve!
