Our Favorite Loft Cookie:

Recipe from Mccall's Cookbook

(Soft Sugar Cookies you usually find in the supermarket)

3 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 stick of softened butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

3/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond flavoring

Beat the sugar and the butter together until light. Add the flavoring then the salt, sour cream, baking powder and baking soda. Beat in one egg at a time. Add the flour and mix until this forms a ball.

Using extra flour on a board roll out around 1/2 inch thick or more whatever you like these are thick cookies and use your favorite cookies cutters to the theme of the Holiday. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Bake until edges start to turn brown around 10 to 12 minutes.

Cool, frost with coordinating tinted store bought frosting using food coloring of choice or make your own homemade. Sprinkle with colored sugars to match.
