Lofthouse Style Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by curly top

I had originally called these 'melt in your mouth' but I think they are the closest to Lofthouse I've found. These are soft cookies that have a unique flavor by adding both almond and vanilla flavorings. They are dropped rather than rolled so are easier to make. Kids always enjoy helping to frost, decorate and eat them.

These cookies are very bread like...i should've known by the amount of flour. They sure don't "melt in your mouth."
