My favorite summer treat when I was a kid was a creamsicle ice cream bar. Now I can have it as a cookie, and that makes me happy! Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 14 minutes Ingredients For the cookie bars: 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup powdered sugar 2 egg yolks 2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon orange zest 1 tsp of vanilla extract For the frosting: 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 3 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar 1/3 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract 1/2 teaspoon orange zest orange sprinkles (optional) Preparation Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9×13 pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, cream together butter, salt, sugar, orange zest and vanilla beans. Add egg yolks and mix well. Add flour and mix until a dough forms. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes at 350 degrees or until firm. Remove and let cool completely on a wire rack. Meanwhile, combine all of the frosting ingredients in the bowl of a standing mixer and whip until fluffy. Spread the frosting over the cooled cookie base and immediately sprinkle with sprinkles. Chill in the freezer for at least 30 minutes before slicing into bars and serving.
