My one weakness at my grocery store bakery are the lofthouse cookies – I could definitely eat an entire container of them… bad thing is , I can’t pronounce ONE thing on the label!  LOL – This recipe was easy to read and pronounce, and GOOD ! I made them for my jewelry party, and everyone loved them !:)

For the bars:

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder

For the frosting:

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
6 tablespoons heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a jelly roll pan (15 x 10 x 1) with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

2. In a mixer, cream butter, cream cheese and sugar together. Add in egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.

3. With mixer on low, add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix until just combined.

4. Press dough evenly into your prepared pan. The dough will be sticky.

5. Bake for 20 minutes until edges begin to golden. Cool completely before frosting.

6. To make the frosting, cream together the butter and vanilla. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar and the pinch of salt. Once smooth and creamy, add in heavy cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, then beat at medium-high speed for a minute or two until light and fluffy. If desired, add food coloring and beat until combined (I used neon pink).
