Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies years ago and had forgotten about them until a friend reminded me of them recently.  These are unlike any other chocolate chip cookies you’ve ever tasted!  The batter is almost cake-like because of the addition of the sour cream.  A cross between a chocolate chip cookie and cake?  Yes, please!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe Adapted From:  Everyday Food Magazine

  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter slightly firm and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chopped (I used chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a few baking sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; and set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and
    fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until combined. Add sour cream, and beat until combined. Add flour mixture; beat until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Drop dough in mounds (2 level tablespoons each) at least 2 inches
    apart onto prepared baking sheets (as you work, chill any remaining dough until ready to bake).
  4. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are golden brown but still soft to the touch, 15 to 16 minutes (chilled dough will take longer). Cool 5 minutes on sheets; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. I made these cookies this weekend and it’s Wednesday. I’ve kept them in the refrigerator this week and they’re still nice and chewy! I’ve found they last a bit longer that way – just a helpful hint to all of those who want Susy’s cookie goodness to last!

    The quasi-cupcake feel these cookies have made them really delicious, especially straight from the baking sheet! I enjoyed the new take. They came together very easily too, which I haven’t decided if that is delightful or just dangerous! :o)


  4. Added peanut butter, oatmeal and chia seeds. Still amazingly delicious!! Thank you 😉
