I made these delicious cookies over the weekend for the family to enjoy, and we all thought they were much better than the cookies in the store by the same name. I didn't count how many I got, but it makes quite a few.

Lofthouse Sugar Cookies

1/2 cup dairy sour cream
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

With electric mixer, beat sour cream, butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until creamy. Add dry ingredients and mix on low speed until blended well. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and flatten out slightly with hand (may need to flour hand, so dough doesn't stick). Bake at 350° for 10 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges, but still white (may not think they are done, but they are and don't want to overbake.) Remove to wire racks to cool before frosting.

Buttercream Frosting
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
(I used butter flavored Crisco)
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. milk
Food coloring, if desired

Beat together butter and shortening at medium speed of electric mixer for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup powdered sugar and beat until smooth. add another 1/2 cup and vanilla; beating until smooth. Add remaining sugar and milk, ending with sugar. Add food coloring and mix, if using.

Frost cold cookies and add colored sprinkles on top. This made more frosting than I needed for the cookies, so put the remainder in the refrigerator covered and will use on a small chocolate cake this week.
