Pastel Easter Tye-dyed Bars

From my files - saved with this recipe so I could see what they look like, but it's not my picture.
Back in 2013 I posted this idea.  Later, I made these bars and I'm not sure I posted those photos or not.  These are from the original 'idea file' I had back then. (I saved the pictures in my files for that 'visual' instruction. I didn't save any instructions - just the photos.)

These are perfect for an Easter get-together - so cute! 
  • You can see the idea is to choose 3-4 colors and pipe lines down your baked and cooled cookie bars. 
  • Cover with clear plastic wrap.
  • Press them very gently through the plastic to join them at the edges.
  • Remove the plastic.
  • Using a skewer, knife or other item, drag lines through the frosting from top to bottom.
  • Cover with plastic again.
  • Using your finger, draw down the scored lines to blend the edges again, blurring the lines and giving it a tye-dyed effect.

I hope the instructions make sense to my daughter or anyone else that may stop in to use some of the idea's and recipes on my site-collection.  You can use them on any bar cookie, but the simple sugar cookie style recipe is below the photos as it's a basic and easy recipe to use.










Sugar Cookie Bars

1 c butter
2 c sugar
2 t vanilla
4 eggs
5 c flour
1 t salt
1/2 t baking soda

In a large mixing bowl cream butter, sugar, and vanilla until fluffy and smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well between each addition. Sift dry ingredients together and add to sugar mixture in small amounts. Mix batter until all flour is incorporated. Press into a 9X13 or 11X17" pan. Bake in 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.

Frosting

1 1/2 c butter, soft
2 t vanilla
6 c powdered sugar
1 t salt
3 T light corn syrup

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until fluffy. Add vanilla and salt then one cup powdered sugar at a time, scraping down sides until well blended. While mixer is running on medium-high speed add in karo and beat frosting until light and fluffy. Makes about 5 cups frosting.
