Recipe Thursday-Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on March 22nd, 2012 | Posted in Cookies, Recipes

I love soft homemade cookies and these Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies are just that. The recipe originally calls for a half cup of plain nonfat yogurt and no eggs, but I have made many variations of this recipe, including adding Greek yogurt in place of regular yogurt. This round of baking I had some extra sour cream and knew that it would add nicely to the softness and richness of the cookie and it did just that. I originally had, similar, soft yogurt cookies from an Amish stand. This recipe I believe rivals the original inspiration. Enjoy!
