Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

I've spoken before of my particular penchant for store-bought treats, especially the ones sold in the supermarket bakeries.  I know, I know - as a devout home baker that's tantamount to blasphemy, but what can I say I can't help it!  

Lofthouse is famous for their soft frosted sugar cookies and when I saw a homemade on Annie's Eats I knew I wanted to make them.  Now it was a question of waiting for the right occasion.  My niece's tenth birthday party seemed especially appropriate.  

I warn you that these cookies are sweet so extreme moderation is almost a requirement, but boy are they good!  The fun frosting colors and sprinkles entice the kid, or kid-at-heart, in all of us. 


  1. Oh the simple joys in life! Homemade soft sugar cookies taste SO much better than the store-bought kind. I was happy to stumble upon a simple classic, sometimes you don't want those super trendy desserts from the food blogs.

  2. My daughter loves sprinkles. Anything colorful, vibrant, pretty and sweet will make her smile...I can see her reaching out for her cute apron and ask me to start cleaning up the kitchen so we can start making these wonderful cookies! Oh it will be so much fun!
