I received this recipe from a friend 35 years ago. It is the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I use. They are a soft and moist cookie. They are definitely a family favorite in our house.

I didn't find these too tasty. It was also hard to tell when the cookies were either done or underbaked. I would really suggest using full fat sour cream if you try this. This also makes a lot of dough and a lot of cookies.

A very good cookie. Will make again, though I only had lite sour cream so will try it w/ regular next time. They bake really quickly toward the end so keep an eye on them.
