Funfetti Oreo Sugar Cookie Bars #fbcookieswap

Happy Friday, friends! It’s hard for me to comprehend that Christmas is NEXT WEEK. Really I should have made these sugar cookie bars a little bit more festive, but y’all know how I feel about funfetti things and sprinkles.

And also Oreos. I’ve blabbed on and on many times here on the blog about how much I love them when they’re baked inside of cakes or brownies, how they get so soft on the inside and are somehow even better than they were before. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted a recipe with my fave sandwich cookies, so I felt like these needed to happen.

I originally made these for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! Typically I would send actual cookies for this kind of thing, but I’m much better at making bar cookies than regular cookies for some reason.

And these really couldn’t be any easier. For this post, I made them a little differently than the ones I packaged up and shipped off to my blogger matches. I chopped up the Oreos and folded them into the dough the first time, which turned out totally fine, but too many Oreo crumbs can give the cookies a gray-ish color.

The second time, I just decided to press half the dough into the pan, arrange the Oreos on top, and then cover them with the rest of the cookie dough.

I received some really incredible cookies in the mail from my cookie swap matches! There were some wonderful spiced cranberry cookies, some cinnamon apple, and some chocolate peppermint cookies. I shared them all with my family of course, but I for real thought my mom was going to steal the cranberry ones from me. 😉 It’s so fun to get treats in the mail, so I’d just like to say a huge THANK YOU to the bloggers who sent me cookies!

Funfetti Oreo Sugar Cookie Bars
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Birthday Cake Oreos (or your fave Oreos)
  • Garnish: chocolate drizzles and sprinkles!
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350*F and spray a 9x9 inch baking pan with cooking spray
  2. Cream butter on medium high speed with an electric mixer. Add sugar and vanilla; mix until fluffy.
  3. Add eggs, mixing well after each.
  4. Next, add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until all ingredients are combined.
  5. Divide dough in half. Press half of dough into the prepared pan. Arrange Oreos over cookie dough, then top with remaining cookie dough. (The easiest way to do this is to just lay flat pieces of dough over the top and sort of press the seams together.)
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cookie dough is golden brown on top. Remove from oven and cool completely. Cut into squares and enjoy!
  7. Recommended: drizzle with melted chocolate and cover with sprinkles!
