Fluffy Sugar Cookies & Vanilla Frosting

Dear Santa,

I’ve been very good this year.

Fluffy sugar cookies are topped with a vanilla frosting and sprinkles.

I’ve gone to the gym at least once a month.

I’ve made lots of tasty things to share with family and friends eat.

I’ve taught 24 nine-year-olds how to multiply double digits, even with distractions like silly bands, nose picking, and shredded pink erasers.

I watched all the best 90’s Christmas movies.

Best of all, I’ve only spent about $900 at Target on unnecessary Christmas decor.

Now, Santa, let’s talk about what I would like this year.

I would accept a week-long vacation to Hawaii, a lifetime supply of chocolate, a new Prius filled with a lifetime supply of chocolate, or a baby pug.  I’ll even leave you extra fluffy sugar cookies. And I’ll only take 1 bite.

These fluffy sugar cookies are topped with a vanilla frosting and sprinkles just like the Lofthouse brand! Super easy to make at home.

  1. For the cookies, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, sour cream, and vanilla. Add baking soda, baking powder, and flour. Mix until a soft dough forms. Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
  2. Roll out dough 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into small circles (2 1/2 inches in diameter) and bake at 425 degrees for 3-4 minutes. Wait until cookies are cool before frosting.
  3. For the frosting, beat together all ingredients with an electric mixer until very smooth. Frosting will set lightly after a few hours.


If you are making larger cookies, increase the baking time. For small cookies, I really only needed 3 minutes for my cookies – the ones that I baked longer than 3 minutes turned out very dry. Personally, I don’t care for these cookies plain. The frosting really makes them stand out!
