Units Scale

Sugar Cookie Layer

  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder


  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • Orange food coloring (optional)
  • Sprinkles (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set it aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and granulated sugar.
  4. Add the vanilla and egg to the butter mixture. Mix until smooth.
  5. Add the all-purpose flour and baking powder to the wet mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  6. Press the cookie dough evenly into the prepared baking pan.
  7. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. Let it cool completely.
  8. In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream until peaks form.
  9. Add drops of food coloring to the frosting and mix until it’s the desired shade.
  10. Spread the orange frosting over the cooled sugar cookie bars.
  11. Don’t forget to add Halloween sprinkles.
  12. Once the frosting has set, cut the bars into squares and serve right away or store them.


  • Make sure to soften the butter ahead of time for a smoother creaming process.
  • Mix the ingredients thoroughly to achieve a consistent cookie dough.
  • Carefully measure the ingredients—especially the flour—so you don’t get a dry cookie layer.
  • Instead of cream, you can use half-and-half or milk, if needed.
