Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies


I was looking for MORE chocolate chip cookie recipes because it seems that my daughter ONLY ever wants plain 'ol chocolate chip cookies.

So I oblige.

Yes, sometimes I spoil my kid rotten, but she's my kid and, well, honestly, we all love chocolate chip cookies. This just gives me an excuse to try another recipe.

As I was  making this batter, I was going through my collection of chocolate chips, sprinkles and left over Christmas candy that has been in the cupboard.

I still had half a bag of Green and Red Holiday Chips and Green and Red M&M Pretzels.So I had my Little Cup divide them up - Red for Valentine's Day and Green to save for St. Patty's Day.

I then divided the batter into three bowls and made MAN Cookies for Mr. Quart!

These Cookies are filled with the M&M Pretzels, a few standard chocolate chips, and a handful of walnuts.

The perfect way to my man's heart!

Then, I took the red chocolate chips and added them to the batter and added some red sugar sprinkles. 

They tasted great, but didn't photograph too well....

Finally, I gave into my Little Cup and made her some plain chocolate chip cookies.

I added way too many mini-chips and they were so good!!

These Cookies did not last long in our household! 
Mr. Quart couldn't tell that they were made with Sour Cream and my daughter ate the batter without complaint. I could taste a bit of a "tang" when taste-testing the batter, but there was no tang to the cookies. 
Just soft, yummy cookies!
