SERVINGS
ONE 8X8-INCH PAN
1 Package Krusteaz Butter Vanilla Sugar Cookie Mix
1 Large Egg
1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, Softened
Frosting:
1 (14 oz) Tub Store Bought Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting (Or 6 oz Cream Cheese, Softened, Lite Okay)
1/4 Cup (1/2 Stick) Unsalted Butter, Softened
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tsp Salt, or To Taste
2 Drops Red Food Coloring, or As Necessary for Desired Color
3-4 Tbsp Valentine’s Day Themed Sprinkles
STEP 1

Bars – Heat oven to 350F, line an 8×8-inch pan with aluminum foil for easier cleanup, spray with cooking spray; set aside.

STEP 2

To a large bowl add all the cookie mix, egg, butter, and mix with a handheld electric mixer until combined; dough takes a couple minutes to come together.

STEP 3

Turn dough out into prepared pan, smoothing the top with a spatula as necessary.

STEP 4

Bake for about 24 to 26 minutes, or until center is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs. Allow bars to cool completely in pan on a wire rack before frosting.

STEP 5

Frosting – To a large bowl, add the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and beat with a handheld electric mixer until smooth.

STEP 6

As desired, add the red food coloring. I was going for a pale pink and added 2 drops. Add slowly and mix well after each drop or two.

STEP 7

Turn frosting out over the bars and evenly sprinkle with sprinkles before serving. Bars will keep airtight at room temp for up to 4 days or in the fridge for up to 1 week. I am comfortable storing frosted items at room temp but if you’re not, store in the fridge.
