Copycat Soft Sugar Loft Cookies

Friday, March 17, 2017

A favorite copycat soft sugar cookie you'll find in the supermarkets for every holiday. Sugar loft cookies are a soft delicious sugar cookie everyone loves. Make them for St. Patrick's Day, or use any cookie cutter to match your event or holiday theme!
Check out this copycat recipe, I am sure you will be excited on the outcome!

When I go into a supermarket around any holiday I see these all decorated up with frosting and sprinkles to match the holiday color. Since it's St. Patrick's Day I decided to make shamrocks! So fun to eat and delicious.

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. 

Perfect with any cookie cutter at Easter, Christmas,  even the the 4th of July cutting stars out!

I hope you all had a wonderful festive St. Patty's Day! Here are the cookies I made for the family gathering!

Wishing you good health and lots of luck today,
tomorrow and always!

Loft Cookies

(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.  For homemade: Beat  together 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons softened butter and water by the one teaspoon at the time until spreadable.
