Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft & Plump...these cookies are a nice change of pace from the traditional butter based chocolate chip cookies that I tend to make.  This recipe offers not just a beautifully shaped cookie but also the tangy tastes of honey and sour cream.

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup warm honey
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 Butter Flavor Crisco stick
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 375. Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

Mix shortening, brown sugar & sugar until well blended in an electric mixer. Add sour cream, honey, egg and vanilla. Mix again

In a second bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the electric mixer & stir until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

Using a cookie scoop, place on cookie sheet and bake from 10-12 minutes. This recipe is best not over baked so plan to take the cookies out just as you notice the edges turning a golden color.

Yield: About 5 dozen
