4th of July Sugar Cookie Bars Recipe

For the 4th of July I made this cute little 4th of July Sugar Cookie Bars. They were a huge hit at the 2 different BBQ's that we took it (PS I didn't take the same pan to both places ;)


4th of July Sugar Cookie Bars
Ingredients: 
1/2cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

 Cream layer:
1 8 oz bar of cream cheese softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Large Tub of Frozen Whip Topping or 1 pint of Heavy Whipping Cream Whipped
1 lb of fresh Strawberries
1 pint of fresh blueberries

Cream butter, sugar, and eggs. Mix in vanilla. with salt and baking powder.  Then slowly add in the flour until the dough separates from the edge of your bowl (I like to use my +NutriMill Bosch Mixers , but doing it in a regular bowl or in a +KitchenAid will also work great)
  
Press the dough in a cookie sheet (like the one pictured).  You might want to spray your hands (and wash them as my mom would STILL remind me.  lol) with some non-stick butter type spray (I like +PAM Cooking Spray personally)
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until done.

For the topping: mix the cream cheese, powedered sugar, and vanilla in a bowl, beating until smooth.  Then fold in your whipped cream/whipped topping.  

Spread that over the top of your cooled down bars.  Refrigerate if you won't be using immediately.   Then right before you serve the bars place your fruit in whatever design you desire (I did the American Flag)  

Quick note: I like more topping than bars when I make this recipe, if you think you would like more cookie and less topping ratio then double the bar recipe.
