Almond Sugar Cookie Bars

My cute neighbor made these delicious cookies for me.  I took one bite and knew that I was not going to be sharing them with my family.  I hid these delectable morsels and ate every single on.  Once they were gone I knew that I had to have more.  Thank goodness that she was willing to give me her recipe.  They are as good as any sugar cookie but so, so much easier to make.  You can thank me for this recipe later. :)

1 1/2 Cups sugar
1 Cup butter softened
1 8ounce package of cream cheese softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp baking powder
3 1/4 Cups flour

Cream sugar, butter, and cream cheese.  Add eggs and beat well.  Add vanilla and almond.  Mix.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Press dough into cookie sheet sprayed with Pam.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, until very light brown.  Cool to frost.


3 Cups
1/4 Cup milk
1/2 Cup butter, softened
1 Tablespoon almond extract
Dash of salt
