Lofthouse Sugar cookies are those soft cake like sugar cookies you find at Walmart 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.

How To Make lofthouse sugar 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.
