Another family recipe. Very good!

You have to watch these cookies closely, as they tend to burn easily, as well as stick to your cookie sheet.

Serves:

makes 6 dozen (depending on the size cookie scoop you have)

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Ingredients

2
squares chocolate, melted (or 1/2 c. cocoa powder and 1 1/2 tsp shortening)
1 3/4 c
flour
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
2/3 c
butter or margarine
1 1/3 c
sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1
egg
1/2 c
sour cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and sour cream. Then add either melted chocolate or cocoa powder and shortening
2
Mix dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt) and add to wet ingredients. Mix well.
3
Drop by spoonfuls (or cookie scoops, if you've got one) on to a cookie sheet.
4
Bake at 400 for 7 min. Watch carefully, it may take less time in your oven. Let rest for 1 min. Remove to wire rack and cool.

NOTE: These like to stick to the pan, and can burn very quickly if you aren't paying attention. Any ideas on how to help them not stick? I tried wax paper (didn't have any parchment paper) and all they did was stick to that and my oven got smoked up.
