I made these for my superbowl party and they were everything i could have hoped for. At least a 90%+ match to the Lofthouse cookie. The dough was very very stick so I gave up the cookie cutters for round balls that I patted down.

Great recipe! Took about 50 cookies to church and received nothing but raves. I put a light glaze of melted Almond Bark - Vanilla - and sprinkled with colored sugar.

These cookies do not even come close to the Lofthouse cookies in the supermarkets. They lack flavor and even the best icing does not make much improvement. Their texture is also dry and a little stiff. I would not make these again.

I made them and gave them to the kiddos in the hood. They say that they taste exactly the same as the store ones. I added 1/2 almond extract to cookie and 1/4 to the icing. As the other comment stated they have no flavor till you ice. But that is the beauty of this cookie. A vehicle to get icing in your mouth that stays soft for days. Very sticky dough but worth making when the grocery sells them for 3.50 for 12.

I think, that in all fairness, the "original" cookies purchased in grocery stores are sweet due to the generous frosting! Take that from them and they, too, are not at all sweet.

These cookies look great once they're baked, but do not taste sweet at all! They taste like a dense coffee cake. If you put a fair share of frosting on top, they are tolerable.
