I made you some cookies.......................
What do you have on your Valentines Day Agenda today?
I was going to make my husband a big dinner and dessert tonight.
But I'm sick.
Nothing sexier than a runny nose, and a nasty cough.
Not to mention I'm living in my husbands sweatpants and my blue fuzzy bathrobe.
The hubs knows when the blue fuzzy bathrobe is pulled out to not come any closer!
I only wear it for 2 occasions, pregnancy and when I'm sick.
He even surprised me with an early gift last night. Half dozen red roses and a new lens for my Nikon. He really is the best!
What does he get?? He gets the blue fuzzy bathrobe....
You get these awesome cookies!
Lofthouse Style Sugar Cookies
Recipe adapted from Two Peas and their Pod
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1½ cups plain Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
In a large bowl sift together, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In the bowl of your electric mixer cream together you butter and sugar.
On low speed add in eggs one at a time.
Add in Greek yogurt/sour cream and vanilla extract until it is incorporated
Slowly add in your flour mixture 1/2 cup a time, until dough comes together . It needs to be rolling consistency but slightly sticky, so add extra flour if needed. (I needed another 1/4 cup).
Pat dough into 4 rectangles and wrap in plastic wrap.
Refrigerated over night OR if you are like me a couple hours!
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out so it is about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut with 3- 3 1/2 inch cookie cutters.
Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 425 for 7 minutes.
Set aside to cool completely.
1 cup room temperature butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups of powdered sugar
2 tbs heavy cream
(food coloring and sprinkles optional)
In your electric mixer cream butter and vanilla together on medium/low speed. Add in your sugar 1/2 cup at a time. Whip in cream and then add in food coloring.
Frost cooled cookies and store in airtight containers.
Your welcome =)
