Lofthouse Cookie Copycat RECIPE (those soft pretty frosted sugar cookies you get at Publix)


OOOOKAY friends I know I just posted BUT I HAVE to share this COPYCAT LOFTHOUSE COOKIE recipe with you!


But first, a picture of Chris Evans.

I got this somewhere on the internet I don't remember I hope I don't get sued

Anywho.

These are Lofthouse cookies:
"Patriotic!"

At my house, we call them July 4th cookies because that's when we always get them. It was only recently I learned they came in other colors for other seasons.

How to make your own Lofthouse cookies:

  1. Make the sugar cookie dough for my mint chocolate reindeer recipe here. BUT WAIT! There's an error in this recipe. When adding the egg and vanilla, you should also add 2 tsp milk (plant-based or dairy) and 2 tsp canola oil. Don't be afraid to be generous with the vanilla.
  2. Chill the dough for about 1 hr.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 deg Fahrenheit. Line trays with parchment or bake-safe silicon mats. Roll the dough into balls, a little smaller than a tablespoon in size. Place them about 1 inch each apart on baking trays. They will expand a little bit, but not too much, so make them slightly smaller than the result you want.
  4. Bake 5-7 minutes, just until the top looks matte instead of shiny. Cool the trays on wire racks for ten minutes, then let the cookies cool on the racks, without the trays.
  5. Make this frosting. I left the food coloring out, and I ended up having to add about twice the powdered sugar to make it thick enough. As with the cookie dough, don't be afraid to be generous with the vanilla.
  6. Add red, white and blue sprinkles!


The frosting tastes a little creamier than the Lofthouse cookie frosting, but I think that if you gave someone one of these cookies and told them you had just taken it out of one of those iconic plastic boxes from Publix they would believe you.


Happy American Independence Day. I think it's worth celebrating a country full of people committed to advocacy for progress. Wear your masks, be kind to each other and try not to trash the environment xo. If you make these, tag me on Instagram or Facebook, comment below, and/or email me!

World peace and love,
