Lofthouse Sugar Cookies

You know those Lofthouse cookies that people go absolutely beserk over?  You know which ones--the soft & cakey ones you see at the grocery store, covered in a half-inch thick layer of icing and sprinkles.  Well now you can make them yourself any time you want them (maybe that's not such a good thing).  Sure, the internet is chock full of kopy kat recipes for this cookie, but from what I've been reading most of those recipes just don't measure up to the real deal.  Except for THIS ONE, which I found at Mother Thyme's blog last month.  It's a darn close match for the real thing, but made with natural yummy ingredients.  And an added bonus:  you can make them for much less than the $3 you'd pay for 10 cookies at the store!  My cookies didn't end up with as thick a layer of frosting as the Lofthouse ones do, but they were still plenty good!  The only alteration I made to Mother Thyme's recipe was the cookie size:  I ended up with 21 generous sized cookies, where the recipe shows a yield of 12 cookies.  That's probably the reason why my frosting came up short, so I'll definitely keep that in mind the next time I make these!

On a side note, I'd like to wish the LSU Tigers luck tonight as they take on Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game.  Even though the hubby and I graduated from ULL, we were both LSU students at one time!
