Lofthouse Cookie Discussion about Two Recipes
I've not tried either of these (especially right now as I'm still sugar free and white flour free) but I'd be interested in knowing if my readers have tried either of these!
Be assured however, almost ANY plain cookie will be gobbled up if you use a mound of brightly colored frosting and sprinkles. Happy Easter and have a great day!
2 c sugar (heaping)
2 c cream or sour cream
2/3 t Salt
2 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
2 c shortening or butter
Flour- about 5 cups
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
add eggs, sour cream, vanilla and almond extract. Beat well. Mix all dry ingredients together in separate bowl. Slowly blend dry ingredients into the creamed mixture. Do not over mix. Refrigerate 3-4 hours and then roll out and cut. Or drop by cookie scoop onto cookie sheet without refrigerating. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 8-9 minutes
