Copy-cat Lofthouse Sugar cookies (Secret recipe Club)

This time in Secret Recipe Club my assignment was Melissa from Melissa's cuisine  and I was a lot of time looking her recipes (she have a lot) finally I choose this cookie's recipe and was absolutely lovely!

Thanks Melissa by a lovely and yum cookie's recipe.
Many times I didn't make cookies and was a pleasure.
Yes this recipe make me think in Christmas:)

(about 5 dozen cookies)

1 cup butter room temperature
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cup sour cream
6 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt


In the bowl of your stand mixer using the paddle attachment
cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy about 3 minutes.
Add the eggsone at time beating after each addition until is incorporated.
Add the vanilla and sour cream and beat until 
is incorporated.
add the flour-baking powder-baking soda- and salt and mix on low speed until combined. The dough will be sticky.
Divide the dough in half and flattennin rectangles.Will help you work on a floured surface and flour your hands. 
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

After this time remove one of the dough rectangles from the fridge.
Place the dough on a  floured surface and roll out about 1/4 inch thick.
You can add a little more flour is needed.
Use a 2 1/2" cookie cutter to cut the cookies.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. It is best to work in small batches and keep the dough cold until you are ready to work with it.

Note: I divide all the dough in two batches and let one of the batches in the fridge until the next day when I made the remaining cookies.

Bake at  190°c by 9 minutes until the cookies are lightly browned.
Allow the cookies completely before frosting them.
Decorate as desired.
Store in an airght container at room température.
You can also freeze unfrosted cookies.

(I adapted some ingredients 
in this but I dont have problem)

1 cup of butter room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoon heavy cream
food coloring 
(I used only some drops of pink)

In the bowl of your stand mixer cream together the butter and vanilla.
Slowly beat in the powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.
Mix in heavy cream one tablespoon at time until you have the desidered frosting consistency.
Add a few drops of food color until evenly colored.Store in an
airtight container in the refrigerator.
Bring to room temperature before spreading.

galletas Lofthouse sugar

Estas galletas quedan muy lindas.
Y me recuerdan como la Navidad.
Este mes es de nuevo Secret Recipe Club y me tocó el blog de Melissa's cuisine.
Melissa tiene muy buenas recetas y para varias me costó elegir
Finalmente hice estas galletas.
Salen hartas pero se puede hacer la mitad de la receta si se quiere. Yo hice todo pero el primer dia hornee una porción y al otro día el resto.
La masa queda super buena en el refrigerador.Lo más importante para las galletas es el tiempo.
Las galletas se cocinan muy rápido asi que mejor poner el reloj y tomar el tiempo.


1 taza de mantequilla temperatura ambiente
2 tazas de azucar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 1/2 taza de sour  cream o 1 taza yogurt natural
(hay que probar la consistencia de la masa si queda bien con una taza es ok)
1 cucharadita polvos de hornear
1 cucharadita de bicarbonato
1/4 cucharadita de sal
