One of the final recipes the late Elizabeth Coblentz shared with her readers  in the summer of 2002 was a tasty sounded cookie:  sour cream chocolate chip cookies.  I am a chocolate chip cookie connoisseur…I’ve never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like.  Elizabeth shared this recipe and then passed away a few weeks later so I think with all that was going on I never got to try these, but I may have to soon.  If anyone tries it before I get a chance, let us know how they turn out!

Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Makes about 3 dozen cookies)

2 cups brown sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
8 ounces sour cream
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 cups flour
12 ounces chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients in order listed and mix
well, until dough is smooth and chocolate chips are evenly mixed.

Drop cookie dough by tablespoon onto lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, until lightly golden.

  1. They should have a good texture. Acid (soured cream) and bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) make a good, tender cookie.

    They sound yummy!! i’m going to try the recipe asap. I’ve tried many of Elizabeth’s recipes over the years when she was alive. Her recipe for bread and butter pickles is one of my family and friends favorites. So thank you for carrying on her wonderful and special traditions.

    I made these this afternoon. I have been looking for a recipe for a soft chocolate chip cookie. These are softer than any other I have made. I raised the oven temperature to 375 degrees and baked them for 16 minutes. The batch made a little over 9 dozen cookies. I thought with 6 cups of flour it would be more than 3 dozen.

  4. I have been looking for a good chocolate chip recipe with sour cream, so I tried these. I did add a teaspoon plus of vanilla. They actually tasted better the next day! I can certainly see these served at a function as the recipe made lots of big lovely cookies! I am thinking about trying them with butter next time instead of oil
