Great recipe - very easy and as others have mentioned, it's perfectly moist and has a wonderful cakey texture.

This is a great recipe! They're a nice, cakey cookie which is what I was looking for. I will recommend using full fat sour cream. I used 1/2 fat and you could definitely taste a bit of a funky flavor but that was my fault. I might add a little bit more sugar next time. They stay nice and soft when you put frosting on them.
