I am wondering if these could bee baked in bar cookie fashion, then frosted, decorated and cut when finished? I am always trying to save time
Hi Terri, you probably could bake them that way. You would need to make sure you cleaned your knife a lot otherwise the sides of the cookies will be covered in icing. You could also try our sugar cookie bar recipe. http://www.twosisterscrafting.com/christmas-sugar-cookie-bars/
We love Frosted Sugar Cookies. It is one of a handful of Holiday Treats that we definitely make every Christmas. This year we tried something new with these Christmas Sugar Cookie Bites and Boy oh Boy were they a hit with the family! They are easy to bake and you don’t need Christmas cookie cutters. They are so easy to decorate that even the youngest family member can join in on the fun. And mostly importantly, they are a super delicious bite-sized treat of yummy sugar cookie and creamy buttercream frosting. You’ll definitely want to add these cookies to your Christmas Baking List this year!

Our Christmas Sugar Cookies Bites start with our Best Sugar Cookie Recipe. This sugar cookie dough is easy to work with, tastes great and really holds it’s shape during the baking process. You can find the recipe and detailed instructions on how to make the dough here. We made a half-batch of our Best Sugar Cookie Recipe and ended up with 100 Christmas Sugar Cookie Bites that were approximately 1 square inch in size.
We used a small square cookie cutter to cut out our Christmas Sugar Cookie Bites but you could also cut the dough into strips and then cut the strips into square.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 4-5 minutes. Check on the cookies at the 4 minute mark, because they are so small you don’t want to over bake them. The edges will be slightly golden when they are ready to come out of the oven.
Next, we whipped up a batch of our Best Buttercream Frosting Recipe. We split this batch into three bowls and colored one batch green using 3 drops of Americolor Leaf Green Food Coloring, one bowl red using 4 drops of Americolor Super Red Food Coloring and left one bowl white. You can find our recipe for buttercream frosting here.
Now the fun begins. No fancy decorating skills required. Use a knife to spread the yummy buttercream frosting onto the Christmas Sugar Cookie Bites and then add sprinkles. So easy … so fun.
Repeat the process with the Red and White frosting too!
Allow the Best Buttercream Frosting to set before you store the cookies away. (But you don’t have to wait to eat them!)
The Red, White and Green frosting is so pretty and festive on the Christmas Sugar Cookie Bites.
And these delicious cookie bites will look so pretty in a bowl at a Christmas Cookie Exchange or on your Holiday dessert table!
