How To Make Copycat Lofthouse Sugar Cookies?

Step 1

Using a standing mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until nice and fluffy. Add egg and beat until combined. Reduce speed and add sour cream and vanilla and beat until well combined, scraping down sides of the bowl.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, whisk in the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt and whisk together.

Step 3

Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Remove half of the dough from fridge. Working with a 1-tablespoon-sized piece of dough at a time, roll into a round ball.

Place dough ball onto the prepared baking pan and use the bottom of a glass cup to press and evenly flatten.

Bake on middle rack in preheated oven for 9-13 minutes or until the cookies are just starting to turn golden (NOT brown) on the edges. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on the sheet. Cookies will continue to cook while they cool. Repeat with remaining dough.
