These Copycat Lofthouse Sugar Cookies are better than the store bought version!
If you love the store bought soft and delicious sugar cookies, now you can make them at home! Lofthouse Sugar Cookies are are a nice thick, light sugar cookie with frosting and sprinkles. And this copycat recipe is better than the originals!
This recipe makes about two dozen cookies. The dough is rather sticky but that is ok because you are going to refrigerate it and then add some more flour when you roll it out.
I wrapped it up in plastic wrap and refrigerated it overnight. If you need to hurry up the process pop it in the freezer for a bit.
When you are ready to roll them out add enough flour so that the dough doesn’t stick to the rolling pin or your countertop. I used a 2 inch round cookie cutter to cut out my cookies. They were about 1/4 inch thick.
Be sure and don’t overbake these cookies. You want them to still look white, just barely turning a little golden, I mean very little. Just around the bottom edge, ever so slightly.
I also did a fun Halloween version with orange frosting and sprinkles.
So next time someone emails me to ask for the recipe for the plate full of pink cookies in my picture I can send them a link to this post!

My favorite kitchen tools I use to make COPYCAT LOFTHOUSE SUGAR COOKIES:
PARCHMENT PAPER SHEETS – These precut sheets of parchment paper are a total time saver in the kitchen.
SHEET PAN – I have at least six of these in my kitchen. I use them everyday. The 13 x 18 size is perfect and I use them for everything!
COOKIE SCOOP – I have these in several different sizes but this is the one I use the most and is the perfect size for cookies
