Orange Cream Sugar Cookie Bars

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan. Coat foil with nonstick cooking spray. Set pan aside. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl beat butter with a mixer on medium 30 seconds. Add both sugars. Beat on medium to high until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and orange zest. Beat in flour mixture. Transfer dough to the prepared baking pan. With lightly floured fingers, spread the dough evenly in pan.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack. Spread White Chocolate Frosting evenly over cooled bars. Use edges of foil to lift uncut bars out of pan. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut into bars. If desired, just before serving, sprinkle with additional orange zest.
