Lofthouse Sugar Cookies



Lofthouse Sugar cookies are those soft cake like sugar cookies you find at the grocery store frosted with a sweet bright buttercream. My daughter always wants me to buy them and they are good. Over time I've worked with a few different recipes that pretty much taste the same and this is the one I ended up with. It's a soft cake like sugar cookie with yummy frosting and you can shape these anyway you like and decorate them how you like. Enjoy! Picture is of prepackaged cookies.

1
COOKIE DOUGH DIRECTIONS: In a large bowl combine sour cream, sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla; mix well. In a smaller bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then add to wet mixture and mix until everything is just incorporated. With a cookie scoop, scoop out even size scoops of dough and then roll in a ball in your hand and place on a cookie sheet and slightly flatten with your hand so it's in a circular shape. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven until light golden brown, no more than 10 minutes. They may seem under done but they aren't. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting.
