Copycat Lofthouse Sugar Cookies

I thought this blog needed some pink and fluffy frosting after the two chocolate desserts, so I made these copycat Lofthouse sugar cookies.

Ingredients: Lofthouse Sugar Cookies (slightly adapted from here)

1/4 cup sour cream

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 large egg, room temperature

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

Lofthouse Sugar Cookie Frosting

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup shortening

2 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

pink food coloring *optional

Recipe: Lofthouse Sugar Cookies

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl mix sour cream, sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla until smooth.

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 for 7-10 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown. They may seem under done but they aren’t. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting.
