Grinch Sugar Cookie Bars

These Grinch Sugar Cookie Bars are the easiest dessert you could make! And so yummy too!

Fun fact guys: If you have Amazon Prime there is access to tons of music (which if you have Amazon Prime, you probably already know). But what I bet you didn’t know is that you can listen to the entire soundtrack of How The Grinch Stole Christmas on there.  And it’s not like you are listening to a few songs. You are listening to the entire story!

You guys probably aren’t as excited about this as I am.

Quinn and I found it *so* cool.

So the other morning at the crack of dawn, before even God was awake, but of course Quinn was, we were in the kitchen and she wanted to listen to, “The Grump.”  (How cute is that?)  I was making coffee, she was eating breakfast, and she said to me, “Mom, you should really make a Grinch treat.” (Once it starts, she gets on board with him being the Grinch and not the Grump).

And then I thought of these cookie bars!

They are 100% inspired by the very talented Katrina and these cookies that she made a few years back.

I love that the symbol of the Grinch has become the green with his heart that grows so big at the end. Like we all get to focus on how he came around in the end.

Too sappy?

Anyway, these start with a sugar cookie mix, and end with my vanilla frosting and that’s it.  If you want to go old school, make this sugar cookie recipe, but obviously I won’t judge you if you take this short cut. It’s kind of an amazing life saver.

Happy Grinching!
