Sour Cream Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate Sour Cream Cookies
I know kids' lunches nowadays are supposed to be full of only healthy items, but I cannot resist sending one cookie with Miss F in her lunch. I know my fellow moms from Miss F's class must have a somewhat similar take considering the amount of begging Miss F does for marshmallows in her lunch (everyone else has them!) It got this recipe from the fantastic Branny Boils Over. It fit all my cookie baking needs for a lunch box cookie: it doesn't make a ton, contains no nut products and can be made with my pantry ingredients. I have had this recipe pinned for awhile and I regret not making it sooner. The cookies are so soft and delicious.  This was the first time I ever let Miss F dish out all the cookies on the cookie sheets.  She did way better than I thought, yay for minimal mess.
Chocolate Sour Cream Cookies

½ cup butter, softened
¾ cup sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
½ cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, sour cream and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
