Sour Cream Cookies

Everyone in my family adores these cookies.  They do not last long in this house.  They are very soft and cake like.  I love the tang that you get from the sour cream, and the chocolate with the sour cream remind me of chocolate cheesecake.  They are yummy.  I had my cookies with a strong espresso coffee.  I was in heaven, lol! 

Recipe (Makes dozen and half)
recipe source:  Mrs. Fields

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
pinch salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg, room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (melted over double boiler)

Preheat oven to 315 degrees
In a medium bowl, combine four, baking powder, salt  and whisk to combine. 
Combine sugar, butter, vanilla extract and beat until creamy with paddle attachment.
Add egg and sour cream and continue to incorporate.
Add the flour mixture to cream mixture and beat until incorporated.  Pour melted cool chocolate over batter and mix gently with spoon to make a marble effect.  Do not over mix. 

Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet or use a silpat.  I used a 2 T. spring release ice cream scoop.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes.  Do not overbake.  Do not brown.  Transfer to cooling rack.
