Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg. Add vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and soda. Stir with a whisk to combine. Add to wet mixture and mix just until combined. Spread on a greased baking sheet (use a 13 X 18 pan). Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until light golden brown or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely and frost.
***Note: I usually have to bake these bars between 18-22 minutes or they are too doughy***
For the frosting: Cream the butter until smooth and creamy. Add 4 cups powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla on low speed until combined. Add two more cups of powdered sugar. If desired, add one or two more cups, depending on the texture you are looking for (I usually use 7-8 cups). Add coloring if desired.
Frost bars, top with desired decorations, cut and ENJOY!
Watch the bars...and if they are "puffy" when the time is up, let them cook another couple of minutes until that goes back down. If you take them out too early they are super doughy, which is okay for some but if you're not a fan of cookie dough it's not the best!
