Lime Cookie Bars

It's apparently national sugar cookie day, and I just happened to have made these last night from a recipe on Deliciously Sprinkled. They are almost sugar cookies. I thought they'd be crunchy, but they are soft in the middle. I made some rectangular and some round (they were just easier) and I dipped them in chocolate instead of using cookie icing like the recipe.

Lime Cookie Bars
3/4 c.unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 (3-oz.) pkg. of Jell-O Lime gelatin, dry
2 large eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 pouch cookie icing
Sprinkles
 
Preheat oven to 350°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking sheets. Set aside.

In a small bowl mix the flour, salt, and baking powder until combined. Set aside.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer or a stand mixer, cream the butter for 1-3 minutes. Add sugar and dry JELL-O powder and beat on high for 1-2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla.  Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.

Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out. Cut the dough into small little bars, about 1.5in x 3in. Place dough bars on prepared baking sheet and place in freezer for 10 minutes. (this will help them keep their shape)

Bake for 8 minutes (or until slightly golden at the edges). Let cool.
Once cool, drizzle with royal icing and sprinkles.
