Soft Lofthouse style cookies decorated for 4th of July!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE COOKIES:
  • ½ cups Plain Greek Yogurt
  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Heaping Cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 1-¾ cup Powdered Sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk
  • Liquid Food Coloring And Sprinkles, If Desired For Decoration

Preparation

For the cookies:

In a large bowl using your hand mixer or a stand mixer, beat together yogurt, butter and sugar until combined and light in color. Stop your mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple times as it mixes. Add eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla. Scrape down your bowl again.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and soda, cornstarch and salt. Mix to combine. Slowly add flour mixture into the wet ingredients. Mix until completely combined. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray the sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

Pull the chilled dough out of the refrigerator. Scoop out 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove pans from the oven and set on a rack. Allow cookies to completely cool before frosting.

For the frosting:

Beat butter and extracts in the bowl of your stand mixer with whisk attachment for 2 minutes. Add powdered sugar, salt and milk or cream. Beat with whisk attachment for 3 minutes on high.

Color your frosting with your desired colors and frost cookies generously. Add sprinkles if desired!
