After School Sugar Cookie Bars

I don't know about you, but I have seen tons of these cookie bars on Pinterest.  Since I have never met a cookie I did not like I thought I would give them a try.  The thing I liked about this recipe is it is quick and easy and I almost always have the ingredients on hand....and they were yummy!  Not to mention cute:)
