For the cream cheese frosting: In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together cream cheese and butter until pale and fluffy, occasionally scraping down sides and bottom of bowl. Stir in vanilla. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in powdered sugar and continue to mix until fluffy. **The dough for these is fairly sticky. The first time I made them the dough was more dry and easier to work with, but of course what did that result in? A drier sugar cookie bar. The second time around I added in more moisture and a little less flour – which of course made a sticker dough but a softer cookie with more moisture and a hint of chew. So, just slather your hands generously in butter (consider it your spa experience for the day) and it should be much easier to work with despite it’s sticky texture. Enjoy!
