Every day we have tough days and weeks or years. The past few days have been tough for me. Spent in my private backyard, taking in the sun when it was possible. However, I simply loved being cozy in blankets on those very grey or dull days.
In addition to the blanket, I wrapped myself in butter for comfort and sweets.
I cannot think of an easier way to wrap your body comfortably than with the soft, chewy chocolate chip cookie. Believe me, I have made dozens and dozens of these to help ease anxiety – but enough about the past!
Classic, yet new…that’s the motto of the game here.
A few of the variations on the traditional chocolate chip cookie are adding sour cream into the mix. I simply wanted to modify something, which proved to be an excellent idea.
I learned that the sour cream gave incredible softness and moisture that was like the best I’ve had before.
The biscuits are soft and chewy. They are sweet and loaded chock-full of chocolate. The sour cream provides an extra layer of moisture. If you are a fan of cookies that are on the gentler side, then you’ll enjoy these.
When you need some comfort or need a delicious cookie, Chocolate chip cookies made from sour cream are simply unbeatable! Let’s get started.

Why do we put sour Cream inside Cookies?
Sour cream is usually considered a topping for burritos, baked potatoes, or nachos. However, it can be a great addition to baked products too!
What exactly is sour cream? Sour cream is a cream that has been sour and thickened with bacteria known as lactic acid. This creates a distinctive tart flavor and gives it its distinctive texture.
Sour cream is among the dairy products with the highest fat content you can bake with. The fat content makes baked goods soft and moist. Fat , in all forms, reduce gluten threads, which is why you end up in soft baked goods, like cakes, cookies, or bread.
Sour cream also gives a subtle taste of tang when used in baked products. This flavor goes well in dark chocolate, making the flavor light.
So the sour cream creates a soft and delicious texture.
Since it is the most fattening dairy product, it is impossible to switch directly to sour cream. However, if you don’t have any in your fridge, you could use Greek yogurt or creme fraiche with a touch of lemon juice. The result may not be identical; however, it will work.
Tips and tricks for Making These Cookies
If you do decide to make this type of cookie, then here are a few useful suggestions:
- The dough for cookies can be made ahead. Cookie dough is generally chilled before baking. Some people prefer to chill the dough in a refrigerator, whereas others like to place the dough in the freezer. Cookies can be stored in the freezer for up to one month. Create cookies, divide them out, and put them in the freezer for up to a month. Once ready to use, you can bring it to ambient temperature, then shape and bake it.
- Make the dough into large spoons. If you take pictures of any Chocolate Chip cookie, you’ll be amazed at how large they appear. This is due to the quantity of dough that’s used. Chocolate chip cookies aren’t typically designed as thin, but they are a full and satisfying cookie that is a pleasure to take a bite of.
- Be aware of how long it takes to bake. If you scoop the cookies, as I did, begin looking at them after 10 minutes. It will take between 10 and 12 minutes in total to get them perfectly baked. They could take 12-14 minutes if denser but not as thick. Thicker cookies bake in about 10 minutes.
- Be sure to watch the baking products you bake and look at the color on the outside to determine when they’re finished. The oven you use may differ from mine, which is why a visual inspection and checking the clock are crucial.
- Let the cookies chill completely. Because these cookies are made with Sour Cream, they’re slightly softer. I prefer not serving the cookies until they have completely cool.
In the event that you decide that you’d like crisper cookies, or you want to crisp them up for a loved one who doesn’t like gooey, soft goods, You can always set some of them out and make them hard in a couple of hours in the oven.
