Sour cream helps to make these simple brown sugar cookies soft and delicious.

Yield: Makes About 3 Dozen Cookies


  • 4 ounces butter, 1 stick, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Heat oven to 375°.

Cream butter with brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, sour cream, and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt until well blended.

Drop by tablespoon or small cookie scoop onto greased or silicone mat-lined baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie. Bake for about 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove to racks to cool completely.

Drizzle with chocolate glaze, decorate, or frost, if desired.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

These cookies were delicious. I;m making another batch tomorrow. It took less than 10 minutes so watch the cookies. I added chocolate chips (milk chocolate) this was a nice addition to the cookie. They were moist and soft. Can't wait for the grandkids to try them.
