The Perfect Sugar Loft Cookie Cutouts for all your Holiday Needs!

I love how soft these are and they stay that way. It sure beats all that sugary frosting that is gobbed on at the supermarket. I lightly frost mine and for a little color to match the theme or event or Holiday. Perfect with any cookie cutter at Easter, Christmas, even the the 4th of July cutting stars out! These cookies shape into anything you want.

Copycat Soft Sugar Loft Cookies also great for graduation hats, baby showers and other events that I use this dough for. I have even made them for benefits into shapes for Breast Cancer awareness and other functions. Again just tint your frosting to match the Holiday, Benefit or School Events. I often use beet juice, blueberry juice to get a natural coloring in the frosting. My grandson loves zoo animals so I have a whole cookie cutter collection of several animals. He just loves to help me bake and make cookies.

These loft cookies are always found in popular bakeries all over, usually round circles with white frosting and sprinkles to match the theme. Since I love making festive looking treats when we have a party or family gathering, I always use a cookie cutter. The kids love to help making them with me.

They truly are a versatile cookie that you certainly don't have to have any reason to make them other than they are delicious with coffee, tea or a big tall glass of cold milk. I even like them plain unfrosted. The cookie itself is delicious. They are very easy to make with staple ingredients in the house. Check out the simple recipe and get your creative hat on. Make something special for any reason.
