These are a great cookie both for those who prefer a less-sweet version (as-is) and for those who like sweet (iced with Icing for Sour Cream Cookies on this site). I agree that they are almost like little scones (not a moist cookie and they don't spread). I found that they cooked in much less time than noted - my oven temp is accurate and 13 minutes was plenty so watch carefully. Love that they're packed full of nuts and I used golden raisins in my version - a little more subtle flavor. Will definitely make again.
These are easy to prepare and very tasty. I do wonder about the one teaspoon size cookies however. I used my 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop and made 50 cookies. They baked in about 18 minutes at 350 (my oven is accurate). Instead of greasing the cookie sheet try using parchment paper. Just throw it out when finished and clean-up is a snap!
I mistakenly bought light sour cream and the cookies turned out fine. Wouldn't know I used the light in them. I made the first turn plain because I was afraid they wouldn't be any good and didn't want to waste my pecans and raisins. Hubby said to add the rest as the cookies were fine. So the last few batches we had pecans and raisins in them and used the icing that goes with the cookies. Thought the icing would be too sweet as I didn't even use all the sugar in it but because the cookies aren't sweet the icing went well with them though we used it sparingly.
My family has been making these for Christmas for over 40 years. They are always a crowd pleaser and even the naysayers who dont like sour cream love them. They freeze well too. We have never iced ours though will have to try that and we have never added nuts or raisins. I am not sure why as it sounds delightful but almost always add a bit of extra sugar and vanilla as I like mine sweeter. The lumpy shape is a nice contrast to the typical "Cut out" cookie...
I have made these cookies for Christmas and I know that I will be making these at any time of the year! These are a wonderful little cookie. Not to sweet but very moist. They turned out to be a favorite! Instead of using the icing I chopped walnuts and mixed them with sugar and cinnamon and put them on top before baking and it was great!
Yum-yum five stars! They are kind of like a scone as another reviewer said but that's fine they go great with a cup of coffee! And the Icing for Sour Cream Cookies from this site really makes the difference!
