The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

imageThrow away every chocolate chip cookie recipe you have. Today I have for you the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe. I can safely say I have found the perfect one! The secret ingredient is…sour cream. The sour cream makes these cookies soft and chewy on the inside and their edges crisp. Don’t worry about tasting the sour cream, you won’t even know it’s there.

Here are my Notes

1)I use a small (1 Tablespoon) cookie scoop to scoop out my cookies. To achieve a bigger cookie, place two scoops of dough on top of one another.

2)I used full fat sour cream. The sour cream is to insure a soft, chewy cookie…please do not leave it out.

3)I recommend using semi-sweet or even dark chocolate chips.

4)I baked my cookies for 14 minutes.
