Funfetti Sugar Cookie Bars
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs room temperature
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup rainbow jimmies sprinkles
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar (reserved for topping)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in eggs until light and fluffy, about a minute.
- In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until combined.
- Add rainbow sprinkles and stir to combine.
- Pour into prepared pan and use a spatula to spread evenly to the edges. Batter will be thick.
- Sprinkle up to 1/4 cup of reserved granulated sugar evenly over the top of the batter.
- Bake for 20-22 minutes, then test with a toothpick for doneness. Insert toothpick into the center of the pan. If toothpick comes out with wet batter, the bars are not done. Continue checking every 2 minutes. If toothpick comes out with a few crumbs, then the bars are done. Bars will be lightly browned around the edges and beginning to lightly brown on top.
- Place pan onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely before cutting and enjoying.
