Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies!

 This is what happens when dad helps out in the kitchen  
and makes us a Sunday afternoon treat...
We get YUMMY 
Sour Cream Chocolate Chip cookies 
to enjoy!

He originally found this in a Martha Stewart Living Magazine
when Ethan was just a wee babe.
These are the only cookies he bakes...
these are his specialty 
and since I never make these up they are always
a much WELCOME treat to enjoy!

Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies 
1-1/2 cups unbleached flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda 
1/2 cup REAL butter (1 cube)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 Tbsp. sour cream
3/4 cup chocolate chips (we use semi-sweet chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Whisk together flour, salt and soda.
Beat butter and sugars with mixer on medium for 3 minutes
Beat in egg and vanilla 
Reduce to low speed and add in flour in two batches, alternating with sour cream.
Beat until just combined.
Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
COVER and FREEZE for 10 minutes.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto well greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes.

WOW, Sunday afternoon cookies just can't be beat!
Especially when lovingly made by the best dad and hubby in the world!
(and when we enjoy them as we watch re-runs of  
"Little House on the Prairie" together as a family)
