Copycat Lofthouse Cookies Recipe

lofthouse cookies

 

 

My son's favorite grocery store cookies are the Lofthouse cookies with frosting and sprinkles.  I found numerous copycat recipes online, but this is the combination that worked for us:

 

Lofthouse Cookies Recipe:

6 C. flour, divided

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 C. butter, softened

2 C. sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 C. sour cream

 

In a mixer, blend butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla and sour cream and mix until combined.  In a bowl, combine 5 C. flour, baking soda and baking powder.  Add to the sugar mixture gradually until well-combined.  

 

On a floured surface, divide dough in two or three sections (it will be sticky).  Add enough flour to roll into 3" round tubes as shown here.  Chill overnight or at least 8 hours.  You may have to re-roll them in the tubes as the dough gets colder to create the round shape you're after.  After completely chilled, preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut the dough into 1/4" round slices.  Alternately, you could roll out and use a cookie cutter.  Bake 8-10 minutes.  Note:  Next time I will bake on parchment paper.  The bottoms of my cookies got more done than I wanted them to get.

These aren't too sweet, at least the cookie part isn't.  The frosting is what makes them really sweet, so I'd ease up on that if you prefer them a little less sugary.

Has anyone else tried these?  My son (who is the Lofthouse Cookie fan at our house) says the frosting isn't exactly right.  I'm wondering how I should tweak it.

Try Crisco instead of butter.  (Plain, not butter flavored.)

It's been a long time since I've had lofthouse cookies, but could the frosting have cream cheese in it?
