Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Top Review by Saturn

These are fantastic! I love the bright flavour that the sour cream gives them. They are also nice and fluffy. In my oven, I did have to move my centre rack up one notch. Other wise, the bottoms browned too quickly. After raising the rack, I also added on about 4 more minutes of cooking time. That was perfect for the cookies. I will make this again and again!
