I found this copycat recipe for Lofthouse Sugar Cookies online somewhere. Not sure how much it makes, and I haven't tried it yet, but I will be soon!

I'm thinking the problem with this recipe is that they should be a WHITE cake mix, rather than vanilla or yellow cake mix to start with. Will try and let you know!
