15 4th of July Cookies That Are as Delicious as They Are Patriotic

The truth is, dessert doesn't actually have to be red, white, and blue to delight your guests.

But for the overachievers out there who really want to win their neighborhood block party this year, these 4th of July cookies are where it's at. They're crisp, they're chewy, they're ooey and gooey, and most of all they're show-stopping levels of pretty. And because we understand that deliciousness is paramount, they're more than just a pretty face&mdasher, cookie. They actually taste good too! What's more, they're easy to make some take as little as twenty minutes to throw together. Whether you're partial to colorful blondies, delightful, pinwheel-style treats, swirled icebox cookies, or couldn't-be-easier cake mix cookies, we have a feeling there's something here on our list for you and your guests. plus a few particularly whimsical options that we think your kids will swoon over (blue velvet cookies, anyone?). After you've browsed our picks, be sure to check out our other 4th of July dessert recipes, and don't forget to plan something fun to work up your appetite either.

Blondies: Are they cookies or bars? While the age-old debate rages on, we're having seconds.

Soft Sugar Cookies

Soft sugar cookies are a favorite in our house. Everyone around here loves a big, puffy, soft sugar cookie, and these deliver thanks to a secret ingredient! They are perfect when topped with a delicious frosting and finished off with sprinkles.

Lofthouse Cookie Copy Cat Recipe

These soft sugar cookies are my version of a copycat Lofthouse cookie recipe. Because one of my daughters has nut allergies, Lofthouse cookies have always been a go-to treat when she has to bring a pre-packaged dessert to a school party.

In our district you can’t bring in homemade items, so Lofthouse cookies it is. While they are okay, they never quite fulfill my craving for a good, soft sugar cookie. This sugar cookie recipe on the other hand always hits the spot.

I love that you can change up the frosting color and sprinkles to make these cookies work for any holiday, event or theme.

I worked on this recipe over the summer, while writing The My Little Pony Baking Book.

We loved them so much that I made them a number of times over the summer for different events. That says a lot given the large amount of recipes I was working on!

These chewy sugar cookies aren’t overly sweet. Because they aren’t too sweet, they are so perfect paired with my easy buttercream frosting recipe.

Soft Sugar Cookie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Sugar
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Sour Cream (secret ingredient alert!)
  • Vanilla extract
  • All-purpose flour
  • baking powder and soda
  • salt
  • Butter
  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk or cream
  • Food coloring
  • Sprinkles for garnish

Directions:

These cookies are very simple to make.

Like most cookies you cream together your wet ingredients, then add in your dry ingredients.

One thing this dough does require is some time to chill, at least an hour, and up to 24. If you skip the chilling the dough will be REALLY sticky and it will spread more than you will want. Trust me, just chill the dough here.

After chilling, simply scoop out your dough, shape into balls, and bake. When that’s done it’s just cooling, frosting, decorating and eating (the best part!)

Decorating:

One thing I like about these soft sugar cookies is that you can completely change the look of them with your frosting and sprinkles.

While they are frosted pink in this post, I’ve made them in almost every color of the rainbow. Frost them with red or green for Christmas, pink or red for Valentine’s Day, orange for Halloween – you get the idea.

You can leave the sprinkles off or go for a fun rainbow of color as I did here. No matter how you top them, you’re going to want to make these delicious and Lofthouse copycat soft sugar cookies.
