Today’s guest post comes from Jaclyn at Cooking Classy.  You may have seen these Sugar Cookie Squares on the internet from several bloggers.  I love that you can decorate them to go with any holiday.  Aren’t they pretty?!

Who doesn’t love a fluffy thick frosted sugar cookie? These are all that goodness you find in that delicious sugar cookie without all the hard work! You don’t have to bake or frost individual cookies! All you have to do is spread all the dough out in one pan, bake and frost! Simple as that! These are perfect for parties, not only for kids but for adults too! You are sure to get smiles from these delightful treats! As you eat one you may even feel like a kid again =). Have a great day! Enjoy!
