Copycat Lofthouse Sugar Cookies

Anyone else addicted to Lofthouse Sugar Cookies?! This copycat recipe tastes just like them making super soft and super addicting sugar cookies! { }

I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who didn’t like Sugar Cookies. Aren’t they the best?? My mom has been making sugar cookies for as long as I can remember, and they’ve always been my favorite. They’re soft, delicious and have hints of almond extract. They also have a good portion of frosting which I think is essential for a good sugar cookie. Even though I ALWAYS prefer homemade sugar cookies, I admit that I may be slightly addicted to Lofthouse Cookies. Have you had them before? They are the softest, yummiest cookies you’ll ever buy from the grocery store. I’m not exactly sure what is in them, but I’m quite positive there is an addictive chemical that makes your crave them nightly. 😉

Since my mom is the sugar cookie expert, she thought she’d try a Copycat Lofthouse Sugar Cookie recipe to see if they were just as good. I don’t think they tasted exactly like the cookie, but they were pretty similar and were definitely soft, delicious and addicting.

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 6 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • food coloring



  1. In a mixer, cream sugar and butter until fluffy.

  2. Add each egg, one at a time, beating after each egg until well combined.
  3. Add sour cream and vanilla and beat well.
  4. Add your flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until combined. Your dough will be sticky.
  5. Divide your dough into two pieces. Flour a cutting board and flatten dough into 1-1/2 inch thick rectangles. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  6. Remove, from fridge, one rectangle at a time. Put dough back on your floured surface and roll out to ¼ inch thick.
  7. Using a 2"-3” cookie cutter, cut out cookies and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Work in small batches, so dough stays cold
  8. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes, until cookies are a tiny bit brown around the edges.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool completely before frosting them. (Frosting recipe is below.)
  10. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Cookies can be stored in freezer, if they are not frosted.


  1. In your mixer cream the vanilla and butter. Beat in powdered sugar until creamy. One TB at a time, mix in the heavy whipping cream until your desired consistence. Add food color for a little fun.

  1. You’re definitely not alone in your love of sugar cookies. My Grandma always used to bake them, especially at Easter time. We usually make them at Christmas time, though I often buy the dough pre-made so all we have to do is decorate. I do love those Lofthouse Cookies though and may need to give this recipe a try. Pinning for later!
