Best, Big Soft Sugar Cookies are melt-in-your-mouth amazing. A surprise ingredient creates the ultimate soft cookie experience. These are a favorite at every holiday, birthday, or any occasion begging for cookies!
Lofthouse Style Sugar Cookies
These Best, Big Soft Sugar Cookies are easily one of the first cookies to disappear off any good cookie tray. Whether it’s the holidays, birthdays, or just any random Tuesday.
I’m not just saying that. The Tuesday thing is true. The last time I took packages of these cookies to a weeknight event, these were one of the first goodies on the huge display of treats to vanish. Our own Littles were quite sad we didn’t have a single crumb of soft frosty cookies leftover.
I’ve more than made up for said cookie loss. Funny thing, that. Because neither hubby nor I have gravitated towards soft, fluffy cookies until we devoured these (I’m usually mad about thick ‘n chewy cookies.) Know this: if you don’t happen to go for soft cookies, this recipe will be your game changer.
The Littles and I have been happily baking enough of these Surprise Frosted Sugar Cookies to share with family, friends, and neighbors.
Bonus: we didn’t forget ourselves this time.
Some of you know this: I have three boys. They’re fun, smart, and talented. They also happen to be loud, highly active, adventurous boys who would bounce off ceilings all day long if they could reach. This is why we do allthesports.
But when I get them into the kitchen? Somehow those hyper gears switch into creative mode. They transform into little sous chefs, quickly rummaging for the measuring spoons, whisks, and ingredients.
When the task involves cookies and frosting and sprinkles…well, we’ve got a party going on.
Which brings me to our surprise ingredient. Sour cream. It’s the secret ingredient that creates the amazing melt-in-your-mouth texture of these cookies.
Fluffy Buttercream Frosting with a surprise
These Best Sugar Cookies are frosted with the most delicious, unforgettable frosting I’ve smeared on a cookie in a long, long time.
This frosting is sublime with its almond extract infusion, which livens up the entire cookie and makes your taste buds dance. Funny thing again, because I typically go light on the frosting (unless it’s airy whipped cream frosting.)
But this buttercream gig is light, airy, and just right sweet. The fluffiness of this frosting is splendid on top of this pillowy cookie.
Go all out and have loads of fun! Mix up the colors, shower on the sprinkles, and make it a party in your kitchen – for the holidays or just any random Tuesday.
Enjoy today’s recipe; Happy baking and frosting and eating. 😋Print
