Sugar Cookie Squares

Sugar Cookie Squares

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 egg white

1 1/2 TBS plain yogurt

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt


Preheat oven to 375F 

Grease a 13x9 with nonstick cooking spray

Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Add both the whole egg and egg white, vanilla extract and yogurt; mix until ingredients are incorporated. Slowly add the dry ingredient mixture; stir just until combine and dough comes together. **Do not over mix**

With lightly greased hands, press dough evenly into the prepared baking pan.

Bake 20 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. 

**the top should not be brown, just the edges**

Now you can either leave the cookie in your baking pan to frost and cut into squares or you can let it cool about 15 minutes and then remove from baking pan to frost and cut.
