Sour Cream Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sour Cream Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last week Urban and I both came down with a terrible virus.  After battling it for days I was finally feeling better and couldn’t wait to get to the kitchen to bake.  I hadn’t had an appetite for a couple of days but when it finally returned I couldn’t wait to make these sour cream double chocolate chip cookies.  Actually eating one…okay three while I am typing this.

Yes, you heard me right sour cream.  If none of your recipes include sour cream you are missing out.  A couple of years ago I was making a pie that called for sour cream, what?  It was awesome and ever since I am fascinated with how sour cream makes anything baked melt in your mouth awesome!  Have a problem with sour cream you can use plain yogurt instead.  Are you lactose intolerant?  My brother is and he eats these without any problems.  

These cookies have two kinds of chips and lots of cocoa.  I actually ended up hiding these cookies because my oldest and his Mamma couldn’t stay out of them 🙂  With all of my cookies I recommend using dark chocolate chips.  At least 60% cocoa.  If that isn’t your thing no worries use semi-sweet or milk chocolate.  It’s your cookie!

I like to mix the sour cream and cocoa all of the way before adding the flour

1 3/4 c flour

Once you have it mixed well you can add the chips

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup vanilla or white chips

This recipe can be customized.  If you don’t like the chips I have added you can add something different.  I have also added walnuts to this recipe.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.  You will know these cookies are done when they start to crack on top.  Think brownies.
