Pistachio Sugar Cookie Bars

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over the edges of the pan. Lightly coat foil with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl beat butter with a mixer on medium to high 30 seconds. Add sugar. Beat on medium until light and fluffy, scraping bowl as needed. Beat in egg and vanilla; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, ground pistachios, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; beat on low to form a soft dough. Transfer dough to prepared baking pan. With lightly floured fingers, press dough evenly into baking pan.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Use edges of foil to lift uncut bars out of pan. Spread with Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting and, if desired, sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Use edges of foil to lift uncut bars out of pan. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut into bars.
