sugar cookie bars

This recipe is courtesy of my used-to-be next-door neighbor and always-will-be friend, Aubrey.  I'm not sure where she got it, or if it was her original creation.  Either way, it's delicious and worked out great- even with the toss-it-all-in-at-once approach I used.  Top it with orange frosting and spooky sprinkles, and it's the perfect Halloween treat!  Here is the recipe I used.  Note: This recipe also makes great sugar cookies, just bake for less time (10ish min).  I also froze individual cookie dough balls (on a sheet cake pan, then transferred them to a ziploc once they were solid), and they froze and thawed etc. really well!

RECIPE: Sugar Cookie Bars

1 c sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp milk

2 1/4 c flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 c shortening
1/4 c butter

Preheat oven to 375F. Add the first set of ingredients into a mixer (or large bowl).  Mix. Then add the second set of ingredients.  Mix until dough forms but not too much after.  Pack into a (greased) 9x13 cake pan.  Then bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through and golden.  Let cool, then frost/cut/eat! :)
