“Lofthouse” Style Cookies

I LOVE Lofthouse cookies or any cookies like them. You may have had them from Walmart or your local grocery store. They are cake like and have buttercream (usually colorful and with sprinkles) on top. Here is a recipe for them! It’s not 100% exactly like them, but it’s very close and very delicious ^^


1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

*In a bowl, combine butter, sour cream, sugar.  Mix well and then add eggs and vanilla and mix again.
*In a second bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and powder, and salt).
*Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix well.
*With a tablespoon, scoop out cookie dough and form into even balls. Slightly flatten the balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.  You can also use a circle cutter to cut out more evenly.  If doing so, refrigerate the dough for a bit so it’s easier to cut.
*Bake at 350F until a light gold brown which will be about ten minutes. It will seem undercooked but it is not.
*Let cool before frosting with buttercream.

Buttercream frosting (standard recipe):

1 stick of butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 tbs of milk (may need more or less; just test it out)
Gel food coloring, if desired

*Mix all ingredients well (starting with butter, then vanilla, slowly add sugar and finally, milk and coloring)
*Frost your cookies!
