Our Favorite Cookie...

I needed to use up some sour cream that I had in the refrigerator, so in the middle of baking some cakes, I took time out to make a batch of our favorite cookies...Marbles from Mrs. Field's Cookie Book. They are soft on the inside and chewy on the outside...the perfect cookie.


2 cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup white sugar
½ cup salted butter, softened
1 large egg
½ cup (4 oz.) sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300°. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Combine sugars in large bowl; add butter and beat until grainy. Add egg, sour cream, and vanilla, and beat until light and fluffy. Scrape bowl and add flour mixture, blend until just combined. Melt chocolate chips, being very careful not to burn. Pour chocolate over cookie dough. Lightly fold chocolate into the dough. Do not mix completely so dough has marbled effect. Drop onto ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 23-25 minutes. Do not brown.
