How do I make a soft Lofthouse style cookie?
There are a few tricks to creating the uniquely soft texture of these cream cheese cookies. First, baking soda is used to give the cookies a light and fluffy texture. This creates small air pockets in the dough as it bakes, resulting in a soft and pillowy texture. Furthermore, the use of powdered sugar in the dough also plays a role in the texture of these cookies. Powdered sugar has a finer texture compared to granulated sugar, and it helps contribute to the soft and delicate crumb of the cookies.
