They have to be good sugar cookies though. Have you ever had a really bad sugar cookie? I have, most of them I made myself. I love the Lofthouse Sugar Cookies. Love may not be a strong enough word. When I was pregnant with baby # 2 I would eat almost a box (6 very large cookies) a day. Please don't judge me to harshly. And in case you are wondering, yes I gained the appropriate 50...... ok, 70 pounds that go with eating all those cookies.
So, I have been looking for a very long time for a really great Sugar Cookie Recipe. I had kind of given up. Sugar Cookies can be tricky! The last several years we have left Santa different types of cookies. Per his request. Yes, my sugar cookies were bad enough that Santa himself asked me not to leave them any more. I found a good recipe so this year we left Santa sugar cookies again. The cookie part was pretty good but the frosting just. plain. BAD. So, I was off looking again.
And guess what, I FOUND IT!!! On pinterest (where else) I found Lofthouse Style Soft Sugar Cookies with the Buttercream Frosting!! Let me tell you these are THE sugar cookies!!
They are very soft and puff a little when you cook them.
I do have a tip to add if you make these. It says to lightly flour your surface when you roll these out. I would say to generously flour your surface and keep your dough very cool. The dough is pretty sticky! Also the frosting as written didn't frost all of the cookies the dough made. Maybe I just put a lot of frosting on my cookies. But I will double the frosting for sure next time.
recipe and give them a try.
Thanks for stoppin' by and hangin' out.
