These Sheet Pan Sugar Cookie Bars are super easy to make for a crowd. Cut into squares and serve or top with ice cream. The perfect sundae addition!
For each graduation party, I get asked to bring sheet pan sugar cookie bars. I made them several years ago and they were such a hit I guess they are my signature dessert now. For all of the graduation parties, Nick’s family rents a soft serve ice cream machine. Having these sheet pan sugar cookie bars there to top with soft serve ice cream is popular and so delicious! They usually have a wide assortment of bars, which makes for a great sundae idea.
I’ll leave the sheet pan sugar cookie recipe I use for you below. They are soft and chewy…sprinkles aren’t required but they sure make things more fun.
- 1 cup butter softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- 5 cups flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Prepare a 13"x18" sheet pan by spraying with non-stick cooking spray (we prefer PAM baking spray).
- In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, combine the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Next, add the eggs and vanilla and continue to mix until well combined.
- Slowly add the flour, salt, baking soda and sprinkles to the mixer. Mix until just combined - do not over mix.
- Spread the sugar cookie dough into the prepared sheet pan, pressing evenly until pan is filled.
- Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until slightly brown. The cookie bars will look like they are still a bit doughy, but will firm up and cook as they set for a few minutes. Cool completely and serve within 2 days for best results.
