Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since I had such success with the Sour Cream Pancakes, I went looking for new ways to use up sour cream. I found this recipe in one of my cookbooks and thought we'd give it a try.

Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe adapted from the Betty Crocker Cookie Book

1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package (11 1/2 oz) milk chocolate chips (2 cups) (I used 1 cup mini chocolate chips)

Beat sugar, sour cream and butter until light and fluffy in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed. Add vanilla and egg, mixing until combined. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

The verdict?
Yawn.......don't get me wrong, they were OK cookies, but I was hoping they would be moister or have a tang or something. But nope, just regular cookies. I brought them to a meeting at church where they seemed to go over well, but I think I'll stick with my two favorite cookie recipes: Grandma's Chocolate Chip Cookies, and The Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies.
