Works For Me Wednesday and Sugar Cookie Bars

This is my favorite lotion of all time! I have very dry skin, and eczema too. I found this lotion years ago, and I always keep some around. It helps heal my eczema and really helps the dry skin. That's my Works For Me Wednesday tip. Head on over to We Are That Family and see what everyone else is up too.

I found this really great blog today called Confessions of a Bake-aholic. Megan loves to bake like I do! Her pictures will make ya drool! This is the first of her recipes that I wanted to try. I love it, 5 cups of flour in this dough, and I didn't have to roll out a single cookie! I love a bar cookie, put it in the oven, let it cool a little, add a little frosting, Voila! Done! Wait until you taste this frosting, mmmm.....

Sugar Cookie Bars

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg. Add vanilla and almond and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt and soda. Stir with a whisk to combine. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture and mix just until combined. Spread on a greased baking sheet (half sheet/jelly-roll pan) and bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes (until they're just barely starting to brown). Let cool. Frost and cut into bars.

White Wonder Frosting

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup softened butter
4-5 cups powdered sugar (I used 4)
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
food coloring (optional)

Blend until smooth.
