    These cookies come out looking like sugar cookies with crispy edges and soft centers. They are best eaten the same day, as they go stale quickly.

      WOW, these are very YUMMY cookies! I had always wanted to make sour cream cookies, but never got around it until now. This recipe is so easy and quick to put together and the cookies have a wonderful texture-soft inside and crispy on the outside plus they taste fabulous. I omitted the lemon essence and added more vanilla instead due to personal taste preferences. Also I reduced the sugar by half and they were great like that! I made rather big cookies (see pic) and ended up with 19. Thanks so much for sharing this winner with us! Ill surely make thes cookies often again. Made and reviewed for one of my "babies" in Spring PAC 2009.

      Yummy cookies!!!!!! I have never made this type cookie and I am so glad I tried it!!! I love that it has no egg so the cookies are SO moist and dense and not rubbery or custardy tasting. I used the zest in these for full flavor but it was still subtle and not overpowering. I love that these cookies were so petite and cute! Wonderful tea cookie, thanks for the recipe!!!
