  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine softened (114 grams)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar (150 grams)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (!100 grams)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream regular, not light!
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour spoon, don't scoop
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips or use a mixture of chocolate and white chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter and both sugars. Beat in egg, sour cream and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment lined baking sheets.
  • Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until set - do not overbake. They should still look kind of moist on top when you take them out. They will set as they cool.
  • Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
