This is more of a note to myself! I like to several batches of cookies and then bake them all at one time, so I usually refrigerate all of my cookies. This recipe doesn't lend itself well to that method. The dough became VERY sticky after chilling. Yummy cookie!

Made these tonight and was not disappointed! Very yummy right out of the oven. Was craving chocolate but didn't want the usual so found this recipe and wanted to try it, with the sour cream it really sounded interesting. Glad I did - two thumbs up, with cookie crumbs on them!

These cookies were delicious! I did not have any nuts to add so I just added all chocolate chips but in the future I will add nuts because you can tell that they will be delicious as well. As Tina said, you can tell that this recipe can be altered with using different add ins. Thanks again!

I totally agree with "bicktasw" description. The am't of batter the recipe suggested per cookie seemed like it was going to be too small, but it is JUST RIGHT! This will definitely be my "go to" recipe for a chocolate cookie. I didn't use nuts, this time, but I may use macadamia nuts next time.

Very good chocolate cookie! Slightly crunchy on the outside ....... VERY moist and chewy on the inside! The chocolate flavor is much like a brownie. The crunchy outside takes this cookie to the next level .... now you can have your crunchy cookie ..... and chewy cookie at the same time!!

Excellent soft cookie. My FIL has difficulty eating hard or crunchy cookies, so these are perfect for him! Since I don't like nuts in cookies, I added oats and triple chocolate chips (milk, white and dark). Delicious! I will definitely make these again.

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.
