Copycat Lofthouse Sugar Cookies (Nut-Free)

Remember those soft frosted lofthouse cookies you used to BEG your mom for at the grocery store? Well these are those x10000000. And they're made even better with our limited edition Sugar Cookie Granola Butter® 😋 

Here's what you'll need:

✨ 2 cups cake flour

✨ 1 ½ tbsp cornstarch

✨ ½ tsp baking powder

✨ ½ tsp salt

✨ ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

✨ ¾ cup granulated sugar

✨ 1 egg, at room temp

✨ 1 tsp vanilla extract

✨ ½ tsp almond extract

✨ ¼ cup sour cream or full-fat plain greek yogurt

For the frosting:

✨ ¼ cup butter, softened

✨ 1 cup powdered sugar

✨ 1 tsp vanilla extract

✨ 2 tbsp heavy cream

✨ ⅓ cup Sugar Cookie Granola Butter®

✨ Sprinkles, for garnishing


Here's what you'll do:

✨ In a medium bowl, whisk together the cake flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

✨ In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until combined and it’s light and fluffy. Add in the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Stir to combine. Then, add in the sour cream or greek yogurt and mix well until combined.

✨ Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix until just combined. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

✨ Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

✨ Once chilled, remove the dough from the fridge. Scoop out the dough into balls (~3 tbsp of dough for each cookie), dust your hands with powdered sugar, and roll into balls.

✨ Place the cookie dough balls to the prepared baking sheet, about 3 inches apart. Use the bottom of a glass dipped in powdered sugar to slightly flatten the cookies (they should be about ½” thick).

✨ Bake for 9-11 minutes, until just lightly golden, rotating the baking sheet halfway through.

✨ While the cookies are cooling completely, beat the butter for the frosting until light and creamy.

✨ Add in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and heavy cream. Beat until light and airy.

✨ Frost cookies with the frosting, leaving a small rim on the outside. Then place ~1 tsp of Sugar Cookie Granola Butter® on top of the frosting, and then gently spread and swirl. Top with sprinkles and enjoy!
