Soft and Chewy Sugar Cookie Bars

These Soft and Chewy Sugar Cookie Bars feature a tender sugar cookie base topped with fluffy frosting and sprinklesI made these bars on Thursday evening and everyone loves them. Yes, they are a bit sweet, but very good. I added pure strawberry extract and made pink frosting. Next time I’ll use pistachio extract into green frosting.
