Bake Along (06): Sugar Cookie Bars

It's July, I get it. Maybe you're feeling a little lazy, or it's too hot in your kitchen to roll out cookie dough without it sticking to the rolling pin and the counter. How about taking all of your favorite flavors of sugar cookies and baking them into a bar? That's what I've decided to do this week for my weekly bake along.

Watch the video and I'll show you how to make the dough. I'll talk you through making the frosting. You'll see I went with my favorite color and made mine my favorite color, pink.

What color frosting will you choose?
