- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter at room temp
- 1 1/2 cup sugar white, granulated
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 large eggs

- 1/2 cup butter room temp
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp orange extract

- 2 1/2-3 Tablespoons fresh orange juice
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
Spray a 9 by 13" pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Beat the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Add the eggs and then beat well. Gradually beat flour mixture into the butter mixture.
Press the dough onto a glass baking dish, 9 by13", pan. Cover the bottom of the pan as evenly as possible with the cookie dough.
Bake in a 325-degree oven for 20-22 minutes or until just barely golden. Take out of the oven and let cool.
In a large bowl, add butter. Using a hand mixer (a stand mixer works great too) beat the butter until it is light and fluffy. Add half of the powdered sugar and mix on low speed at first and then increase the speed to medium until the mixture is coming together.
Slowly add in 2 1/2 Tablespoons of orange juice, orange extract, vanilla extract, and orange zest. Continue to mix for another minute or so. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy. Add the rest of the powdered sugar. Beat until light and fluffy and all mixed. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the edges of the bowl when necessary. Add in the remaing 1/2 Tablespoon of Orange Juice if desired. The frosting should form stiff peaks.
Spread the orange creamsicle buttercream frosting on your cooled, cookie bars and top with sprinkles. Enjoy!
