Wanna cookie, sugar? Er…sugar cookie…?

Hello loves! It’s Kayli! 
So…. I don’t know if you know this but… I’m sort of a party animal. I really can’t be tamed. Quit laughing, I’m for real. 
IF by party you mean chilling with my Nook, a bag of pretzels and some Nutella, it’s true. I’m wild. 😉 

 I really did PLAN a party once though. It was a bridal shower! 
I was pumped because it’s all food and games and catching up with everyone. I’ve been to a few bridal showers- so I knew the protocol. Cupcakes, some toilet paper, women walking around with clothespins clipped onto their clothes…. no biggie. 
I wasn’t really up for baking and frosting 3 dozen cupcakes though. 
So the Sugar Cookie Bar was born!

{All spread out.}
So I started with a super delicious, easy sugar cookie recipe. 
But you can use yours if you want. Whatever slides your toboggan.
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 cups of flour
I refrigerated the dough overnight so I could put them in the oven in the morning and they’d be ready in time for the partayy. 
I pulled them out of the fridge, and baked them for about 10 minutes at 375 F.

Once you get your baking rotation going, let each batch cool for a bit and then put them on wax paper, then put more wax paper on top and stack. This will keep your cookies in good shape while you wait for guests and are serving the food and what not.

Now for the bar part! Beforehand I went out and bought all kinds of candy. Gummy worms, Gummy bears, Pieces Candy, Sour Patch Kids, all that fun stuff. Just whatever catches your eye! 
Then I opened up a few cans of frosting. 
(I might be becky homecky but I am NOT superwoman homes. If you ARE super woman, feel free to whip up a few flavors yourself, but count me out- I’ll be at the other end of the table “opening” the potato chips. 😉

{My kind of bar!}
And that’s it! 
The rest is up to your guest and the strength of their sweet tooth!

Happy Eating!
P.S. In case you were wondering, the bride we showered that day IS living Happily Ever After. 🙂
