Christmas Sugar Cookie Bars – an easy and fun festive treat for the Holidays!
I’ve got a major cold kicking my butt right now. Mostly sinus related and I wish it would go away. Sudafed can do some freaky stuff to your body if you take it for a couple of days in a row. It makes the food you eat taste funny so I had to stop taking it. I’d rather be coughing up a storm then having to deal with those side effects. Merry Christmas to me I guess!
I must admit, I took the help from a bag of store bought sugar cookie dough for this recipe. God bless, Betty Crocker! Anything to help during the Holidays right? You can make cookies out of these and put the red and green M&M’s on top it’s so much easier to dump the cookie dough into a pan and sprinkle the M&M’s and white chocolate chips on top. Is it not?
