  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with aluminum foil or baking parchment.
  2. Steam raisins in a vegetable steamer over shallow water in a saucepan. Boil water for 3 minutes, until raisins are moist. Remove raisins and let dry on cloth.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Beat in eggs and sour cream until well blended. Sift together flour and baking soda; stir into the butter mixture. Mix in raisins, nuts and chocolate. Drop dough by tablespoons 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 13 to 15 minutes, until lightly colored. Let cool on wire racks.

These were very good. I skipped the rasins and nuts because we don't like them and just added a few more chips. Very soft and moist. I used the parchment paper as recommended and they slid right off. I also made them much smaller than suggested and lowered the cooking time. Will definetly make these again


I also had sour cream that I needed to use, so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. While it is not your traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe, I thought it was very good. I omitted the raisins and added chocolate chips and walnuts instead. I have made this a few times already and they have turned out great every time. You may want to underbake these slightly so they are moist.


This is a good recipe. They definitely are soft and chewy. Make sure you grease your cookie sheet, even non-stick. They will stick.
