Lofthouse Cookies (Better than store bought!)

I love these cookies.  I didn't think the store bought ones could get any better but of course the homemade ones always win out.

These were a hit with me and the folks I shared them with, they will definitely become a regular in this house!

Here's the recipe in case you'd like to make some!

Lofthouse Cookies
1 stick of butter, room temp
3/4 cups of sugar
1 egg, room temp
1/2 cup of sour cream at room temp
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1tbls of corn starch
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

1 stick of butter at room temp
2 tbls shortening (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups confectioners sugar
3-4 tbls milk

food coloring and sprinkles if you'd like.

Combine dry ingredients, set aside.
Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add in egg until combined.  Add in sour cream and vanilla until incorporated.

Slowly add dry ingredients to wet until well combined. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Preheat over to 375.

Use a cookie scoop (1in for mini cookies 1 1/2in for regular) and scoop cookie down onto pans leaving about 2in between cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes or JUST until they begin to brown.

To make the frosting: cream together butter, shortening, and vanilla.  Slowly add sugar. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach a good spreading consistency.  Color with food coloring if desired and add sprinkles immediately.

Store in sealed containers.

Enjoy! :)
