This creamy cookie frosting recipe is very similar to the frosting found on the Lofthouse brand cookies you can find in stores. This frosting is a bit sweeter than most cream frostings, but it’s perfect our Lofthouse Style cookie recipe. These cookies aren’t sweet so you won’t be overwhelmed by sugar. Of course, if you like sweet cookies, try this frosting on one of our sugar cookie recipes!

- 1/2 cup shortening
- 5 tbsp. milk
