Reviews for Sour Cream Chocolate Cookies
"This is exactly the type of chocolate cookie I was looking for. It's a good cross between a brownie and a cookie....Too chewy to be considered cake like, but not chewy enough to be a traditional chocolate chip cookie to me. I'll definitely make again when I'm looking for a triple hit of chocolate!"
"They are similar to a brownie. Sour cream gives this cookie a very good taste. I used all white chips."
"I'm not a sweet eater, but I have a family all of whom have an extra long sweet tooth. These were easy to make, had a good soft texture, and although very very chocolate tasting, the first three dozen disappeared among a group of ages of 13 through 76 as they were being baked - the cookies, not the people."
"My cookies turned out more the thickness and texture of a regular chocolate chip cookie - not thick and cake-like. Not sure why. I was hoping for cake-like. That said, the cookies are delicious! I baked them for 12 min, let them cool on the cookie sheet a few minutes then moved them to a rack. I also used 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips and 2/3 cup milk chocolate and 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. Why 1/3 cup? Because my 1/2 cup was dirty. There's no science here. I definitely recommend these cookies."
"@creamers: You are confusing weight with volume. 1 cup (volume) of chocolate chips weighs 6 ounces. Do you troll Taste of Home so you can give recipes bad ratings because you don't understand the difference between weight and volume? This is not the first time you've done this."
"6 ounces is 3/4 cup, not 1 cup. One cup consists of 8 ounces."
"Great recipe, easy to make (but very sticky batter)! Friends couldn't get enough pf them!"
"These are very tasty. More of a cake consistency, but still very moist."
