Tuesdays With Dorie – Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies

by Jessica on June 28, 2011

Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies

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! 🙂

Everyone’s cookies look thicker than Dorie saying they’ll be thin. I only made 1/4 of the recipe and got 15-16 cookies and they were plenty big. I sandwiched them. I’m glad I made these this week.

Aw yours look so cute! But could you send me a big plate of the Mozzarella and Strawberries!?

I made a full batch and got way more than 48. I sandwiches mine together with cinnamon filling and they were so good!

Okay, yours look like lovely normal TWD Dorie cookies that turned out perfectly wonderful. Mine look like a Dorie knock-off that went bad. Very bad. Love the photo of them all heaped up on a plate like they are trying to show off and be the first one chosen!!

Beautiful! I thought this made way too many as well – especially when they stuck. 🙁 Great idea halving it – they look especially fluffy – you really captured their “cake-iness”! Nicely done!

Your cookies are puffy and fabulous! Mine are flat – hmmm … anyways, I thought they were good. I shared the love at work.

I ended up getting more out of the recipe than it said too. Never a bad thing! I didn’t put ginger in mine, but it sounds like a great idea!

Now how come my cookies don’t look like yours!! Ah, well. I got 36 from 1/2 the recipe, but they were pretty small.

those look good! i also got more than i expected from a half-batch, but i’m not complaining, either.

I love cookies that magically multiply! They look delicious.
