These monster cookies were so fun to make! I used my favorite Lofthouse CopyCat Cookie Recipe as the base of these cookies.
Then I whipped up some vanilla buttercream frosting to decorate. Sure. I could have gone all crazy detailed and made some royal icing. But my kids (and me too) LOVE this fluffy frosting!
Guess who else seems to love this frosting?
My black lab. TJ.
I’m so glad I didn’t painstakingly spend hours with royal icing. Because that evening, as we were all tucked in our beds, the dog ate over 50 cookies.
Yes. You read that right. FIFTY COOKIES. This recipe made 72 cookies. I was so excited because I figured my kids would have lunch treats for the week. I could freeze some of these for Halloween. Nope. The next morning there were less than a dozen cookies on the tray.
I’m grateful I got some cute photos. However, I would have enjoyed EATING more of these myself. If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time you would know by now I have a love affair with frosting. And these babies were covered in it!
On the bright side, except for a few sprinkles on the floor, she cleaned up after herself.
And she didn’t get sick. Seriously. I almost hoped for a little illness to make her think about what she had done. But no. I do think she may have gained a few pounds though! At least she saved me from eating too many (trying to stay positive here).
I did make a couple dozen plain frosted with sprinkles too! Just like a lofthouse. ENJOY!
