Description

Funfetti Sugar Cookie Bars are made with simple ingredients in under an hour. This treat is the perfect dessert to share for any occasion. They are buttery, chewy in texture, filled with sprinkles, and customizable in color!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup (220g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cup (300g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs (100g), room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk (20g), room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons (8g) pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2g) butter or almond extract
  • 3 cups (420g) all purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 3/4 teaspoon (7g) salt
  • 1 tablespoon (8g) corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3g) baking soda

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9×13 inch pan with sheet of parchment paper and spray the paper with cooking oil to ensure the bars come out of the pan cleanly.
  2. In a large bowl with a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer that is fitted with a paddle attachment, beat your room temperature butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar together until smooth, fluffy in texture, and light in color. This should be 2-3 minutes of mixing on high speed.
  3. Add in room temperature eggs and egg yolk one at a time, mixing between each addition. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula between each egg addition.
  4. Add vanilla extract and butter or almond extract to your batter. Mix until combined.
  5. Slowly, add all purpose flour to your mixture while beating on low speed. Then, sprinkle salt, corn starch, and baking soda into the batter. Mix on low speed until just combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl before pouring jimmies into the batter. Mix until the sprinkles are evenly dispersed throughout the dough.
  6. Transfer batter to your prepared pan. Use a knife to smooth the dough in the pan.
  7. Bake bars for 30-35 minutes or until the bars are light golden brown in color and a toothpick inserted into the center of the bars comes out almost clean. Do not overbake, as the bars will lose their soft, chewy texture. It’s better to underbake these bars, as they will continue to bake as they cool in the pan.
  8. Allow the bars to cool before slicing.
