I’ll be sharing both the Lofthouse copycat cookie recipe, and the frosting recipe. Unlike typical sugar cookies, you don’t have to chill the dough, and you don’t have to cut out the cookies. These are super simple to make, and they really do taste similar to the Lofthouse version.

  7. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, making sure to leave about 1 inch between each cookie. Using your hand to lightly flatten the dough a bit.
  8. Bake for 11-12 minutes, then immediately remove from the oven. The cookies will appear under-baked a bit but this is what you want. Carefully transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and repeat the process until all of the dough is gone.

  10. Use a knife to slather each cookie with frosting. Top with sprinkles.
  11. *Notes – you can make these a bit smaller by using 2 tablespoons of dough and baking for 10 minutes.
