  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter, shortening and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs a few at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the sour milk. Use a size 16 cookie scoop or 1/4 cup measure to scoop out cookies onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be spaced at least 3 inches apart. Test a couple in the oven to see how much they spread, then see if they need to be flattened before the bake.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bottoms begin to turn golden. Let cool on baking sheets.

My family loved them. They especially liked the size. They liked them w/o frosting.

Since I hate chilling and rolling out dough, I was delighted to find a drop cookie recipe that is very tasty, easy to make and bake. Love the soft and chewy texture. Thanks!

This is a cake style cookie. I'm giving it 4 stars because personally, I don't care as much for the cake style cookies, but in their class, they are pretty good. They are cheap, easy, and use ...

Very soft tasty cookie but they spread and thinned out too much. I'd go easy on the milk or add a little more flour next time.

I just made these this afternoon and my husband said they are the best batch I've made to date. I love the soft, cake style...they are great even without frosting!
