These were very good. I skipped the rasins and nuts because we don't like them and just added a few more chips. Very soft and moist. I used the parchment paper as recommended and they slid right off. I also made them much smaller than suggested and lowered the cooking time. Will definetly make these again Read More

These cookies tasted okay and they were really puffy but they are very cakelike. Not what I was looking for at all. Read More

I also had sour cream that I needed to use so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. While it is not your traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe I thought it was very good. I omitted the raisins and added chocolate chips and walnuts instead. I have made this a few times already and they have turned out great every time. You may want to underbake these slightly so they are moist. Read More

This is a good recipe. They definitely are soft and chewy. Make sure you grease your cookie sheet even non-stick. They will stick. Read More

Ok I added abut 1/2C of brown sugar and doubled the chips and left out the nuts and raisens.. I also cut the bake time to 12 minutes. They are a very cakey cookie but overall they turn out pretty good. Very yummy. Read More

Dude these are the BOMB! I replaced raisins for Craisins and pecans for walnuts. Fabulous! Don't know why everyone's complaining about the cake-ish texture. It's great for a change! Read More

I doubled the recipe omitted the raisins and walnuts and used half white sugar half brown sugar and they were wonderful. I gave some to some friends about a week after I made them and they were still moist and tasty. I had to share the recipe with them. Thank you for this great recipe. I am about to make them again right now. Read More

This is my absolute favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I've been trying to figure out the secret ingredient and sour cream is it. I use it every time now! Read More

This cookie is a great change for the traditional chocolate chip cookie. If you like raisins and nuts the chocolate chips add a nice addition. Good texture due to the sour cream! Yummy! Read More
