Cookie Recipe #115 - Marble Cookies
This cookie is a moist vanilla cookie with chocolate swirled in to give it its name.
Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup butter, softened, 1 egg, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 cup chocolate chips.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
Combine sugars in a large bowl; add butter and beat until batter is grainy. Add egg, sour cream and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy. Scrape bowl. Add the flour mixture, and blend until just combined. Do not overmix.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave for 1 minute; stir until smooth and allow to cool. Pour over cookie batter. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, lightly fold melted chocolate into the dough. Do not mix chocolate completely into cookie dough, only until chocolate is well distributed and creates a swirled, marbled pattern.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 23-25 minutes. Do not brown. Quickly transfer cookies to cooling racks.
Makes 2 1/2 - 3 dozen cookies.
