Bar Sugar Cookies

We had a nice time ice fishing with my son's scouting group last weekend.  Always wanting to bring along a little something to share....and always pressed for time.....I decided to give another bar cookie recipe a try.  They ended up being pretty nice and I would make them again.  Quite a few kids said they liked them.  Perhaps they are very polite.....or not very picky.....who knows.  In any case, I liked these.  Be careful to bake only long enough to have a bit of golden colour around the edges.  Then they will be chewy and not dry.  The recipe is very handy if you are in a rush like me:)

Sugar Cookies....Bar Type

1 cup butter softened
2 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

Cream butter, and sugar.  Beat in eggs one at a time until incorporated, and stir in vanilla.  Mix dry ingredients together and add to  wet until combined.  Press into a lined or greased 13"X 18" pan.  Bake at 375F for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden at the edges for a chewy cookie...a few minutes longer if you don't like chewy.
