Heavenly Sugar Cookies - Lofthouse Style



Ingredients:
FOR THE COOKIES:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup heavy cream, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 cups flour

FOR THE FROSTING:

  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 8 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, optional
  • food coloring, optional
  • sprinkles, optional

Directions:

FOR THE COOKIES:
  • Cream the butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla & eggs. Mix until combined. Add the baking powder and flour and mix well.
  • Shape the dough into a circle/ball & wrap in saran wrap. Cool in the fridge overnight or for several hours.
  • Pre-heat your oven to  350 degrees. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. (I prefer them nice & thick about 1/2? but anywhere between 1/4? -1/2? is good.)  Use a 3?- 3 1/2? circle cookie cutter. Place circles on a parchment lined cookie sheet. (These cookies spread a little while baking, so they don’t do well when cut into other shapes)
