Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies


Close your eyes and have a bite.  Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies WILL satisfy those sweet chocolate cravings.  They're lighter in appearance because the recipe calls for white sugar instead of brown sugar, and the sour cream helps, too.  Are you worried that you may be eating sour cookies?  Don't be.  We ate the dough unbaked and baked and NO ONE knew about the sour cream, until I told them.


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups mini-chocolate chips.

Heat oven to 350ºF.

Beat sugar, sour cream, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix by hand.  Stir in flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheetBake 12 to 14 minutes or until set and just beginning to brown.  Cool 1 to 2 minutes before removing.  Transfer to a wire rack for complete cooling.


All you need now is a glass of milk or a scoop of vanilla ice cream 😀
