Sour Cream Cookies II

Sour Cream Cookies II

Celeste

These are delicious cookies that my mother made at Christmas, but are good anytime. Try making them using pecans, but any nuts will do. I like them with a cup of coffee. Top these cookies with icing.

These are a great cookie both for those who prefer a less-sweet version (as-is), and for those who like sweet (iced with Icing for Sour Cream Cookies on this site). I agree that they are almost like little scones (not a moist cookie, and they don't spread). I found that they cooked in much less time than noted - my oven temp is accurate, and 13 minutes was plenty, so watch carefully. Love that they're packed full of nuts, and I used golden raisins in my version - a little more subtle flavor. Will definitely make again.

I baked several kinds of cookies this year and these were by far the easiest to prepare and the best tasting, be sure to use the sour cream icing.
