This cookie dough is almost like a thick cake batter; if it is warm when it goes into the oven, it will spread too much. If needed, chill the dough briefly before baking.

    These are absolutely the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. Friends and neighbors (and my husband) love them.

    These are the worst cookies ever. Cookie baking is my specialty and I have already ripped up the recipe and thrown it away. Shame on you for posting it.

    these are very cakelike, which is not what a cookie should be. i didn't know how the sour cream would affect the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. now i know never to use sour cream for cookies! i'm reluctant to even give these away because i'm embarrassed about the texture.

    My kids love these cookies! They are soft and not overly sweet. We love the cake like texture and it is a nice change to a crispy cookie. Everyone who has tried them has raved about them. The sour cream is the secret to the texture and you cannot taste it. Everyone is surprised when I tell them what is in the cookies. I make them all the time and have passed on the recipe to friends.

    I keep posting a comment and it's not showing up. I made these cookies after all. My conclusion is...I prefer a chewier chocolate chip cookie. These are very cakelike in texture due to the addition of sour cream, and in my opinion, that is not an ingredient that belongs in chocolate chip cookies. Would not make again.

    Video still not working...I really would like to read more comments on this recipe. They look really good because I like chunky, think cookies and not flat ones. Wish I could see the whole video! Grrr...
