My friend Anne found this generationally OLD recipe off the net and made it for her brothers. This one's staying around.
- 2 (1 1/4 ounce) unsweetened chocolate squares
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄4 cups white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2⁄3 cup sour cream
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- In the microwave or over a double-boiler, melt unsweetened chocolate and butter together, stirring occasionally until smooth.
- Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light.
- Mix in the chocolate mixture until well blended.
- Stir in the sifted ingredients alternately with sour cream, then mix in chocolate chips.
- Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes.
- Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
these were pretty good. the cooking time was tricky. if i left it in a tiny bit less or more i got either very fudgy cookies or cakey cookies.. so there was no middle. i put some white chocolate chips in for fun.. would also be good with nuts. i got 3 dozen out of this recipe.
