Grocery Store Sugar Cookies

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am hoping to find a recipe for sugar cookies like the ones sold at grocery stores, I think a 10 pack for like $3. They always sell them at the bakery section (Target and Walmart Super Stores) with different color icing and sprinkles ... depending the time of the year. The cookie is very soft and quite good, don't care much for the icing.

Anyway, my son loves them and I want to try to make them for him. It is very different from NFSC.
Thanks soooooo much! My 6 year old wil be forever grateful icon_smile.gif

I know JUST what you're talking about (picture wouldn't load for me). They are my favorite. I thought they only had the regular flavored ones.. but during 4th of july I found key lime and lemon ones. Yum.

I wish I could help you but I can't icon_sad.gif But, I too would LOVE recipe for a fluffy, soft, flavorful sugar cookie.

I found a recipe that says it's the original Lofthouse sugar cookie recipe...I know sometimes the packages will say Lofthouse, or they did before Walmart started making their own.

It was posted in another forum and there's no instructions just the lists of ingredients.

Lofthouse Cookies:
2 eggs
2 C. sugar
2 C. cream
2/3 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
2 C. shortening (Lard)
Vanilla to taste
Enough flour to form a soft ball (She told me that the key to making soft, fluffy cookies is to add a lot of flour. But she didn't tell me how much. )

I assume that you just mix all of the ingredients together because there are no special directions listed. Bake at 350ยบ (again no specified time) and the cookies need to stay white.

Icing:
1 pkg. powdered sugar
1 egg
1 can condensed milk (for spreading)
1 tsp shortening
1 tsp butter




The icing recipe looks weird to me but the cookie one might be right. I haven't tried it because I can't stand those cookies anymore...my husband bought probably six packages when I broke my leg and he was trying to cheer me up and I'm never eating them again icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks!! I have seen that recipe before and it is on my "to try" recipe list in my quest for the Lofthouse recipe. I think the ones at Walmart and Target are still Lofthouse but they pay to have them packaged under their names ... or so I was told.

Thanks so mucn for the recipe, I do appreciate it! icon_smile.gif

Ooooh I can't WAIT to try these! I might jsut do it tonight..

You think one package of powdered sugar is the 4cup/1lb pound bag or the 2lb bag? I guess i'll figure it out once I see the consistency..

Mmmm.

Yes I did, I also read all the reviews and some say that even though it makes a tasty cookie, it's not quite like the lofthouse.

By tasting the cookies, it seems to me that they use PS instead of regular sugar ... I'll try the recipe out and report back icon_smile.gif

Hmm.. these seem to yield good results too based on the reviews:

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Soft-Sugar-Cookies-IV/Detail.aspx

I will try them this weekend. If you look at the pictures, many of them have that nice fluffy appearance to them much like are loved grocery store ones!

here is another one, which due to the large amount of eggs.. makes me think they will be cake like..

Ok I tried the above recipe I posted, the one from all recipes. In my opinion, the texture, fluffiness, softness was there. I beat the sugar/fat combo for a good 10 minutes to ensure air was incorporated. I didn't have vanilla so I feel like I can't comment on the taste. I used butter vanilla by ML and some Almond emulsion. They tasted great but a little sweeter (imo) than the store bought ones.

I say they are worth trying!

Does looking at the ingredients list on the label help? The 10X sugar sounds like it would work well for the very soft consistency those cookies have. Some older recipes I've seen with 10X and/or sour cream sound very soft, but they require rolling and cutting. That would for sure take the fun out of re-creating them!
Tons of orders this week, so PLEASE -someone try it and let us know!
