Rich, spicy and ‘cakey’. These Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies are similar in looks to those crunchy little gingersnaps I love, however the texture is anything but hard. They’re super-soft and immediately begin to melt in your mouth with the first bite.
Dorie estimates a yield of 48 cookies. Now obviously, that’s way too many for little ol’ me, so I halved the recipe thinking that 24 was a better number. A couple to use as tasters, then the rest taken to work for our weekly spread. Somehow, though, I ended up with 40 cookies… just 8 shy of the full recipe’s yield. However, I’m not complaining. I had a nice contribution to the dessert table and I’ve got extra ingredients for another batch! Score!
