Chocolate Sour Cream Drop Cookies

Stephanie Molzhon


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.

How to Make Chocolate Sour Cream Drop Cookies


  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.
