With Thanksgiving being late this year, holiday baking is already in full swing. These Red Velvet Cookie Bars are one of my new favorites this year.
Bars are a great way to make a dessert in a hurry. Press the dough in, bake and frost. Cut in squares and you have a dessert in half an hour. We need recipes like these for those moments when life is full and time is short!
To make Red Velvet Cookie Bars start by mixing together Pillsbury sugar cookie dough with the flour, buttermilk and a few drops of red food coloring. Press the dough into a 9×9 square and bake 10 to 12 minutes.
While the bars are cooling mix the frosting. If you are in a hurry grab a container of Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Cream Cheese frosting.
I added a mix of red sanding sugar and green sprinkles. They give it a festive finish.
