From other reviewers I expected these to be much more thick/cakelike, so I decreased the amount of baking powder by almost half. According to gourmetsleuth.com: "Baking soda must come in contact with an acid in order to form carbon dioxide gas which in turns makes the baked product rise." Sour cream is one of those acids. Anyway, these turned out fluffy and flavorful. I didn't want to ruin them with icing so we enjoyed them plain!
the texture of these cookies turned out very cake-like, which i find unappealing in a cookie. and they really only needed to be baked about 6 &1/2 minutes.
There are at least 17 reviews on here and most of them reference that these are soft cake-like cookies. The TITLE of the cookie is "Soft . . . " So why ae people still complaining about soft cake-like cookjies in their reviews??? For goodness sake, people, what are the reviews for if not to warn you away from things you're probably not going to like? (Of course there's other reasons to read the reviews too.) Anyway, I thought these were really good - soft as I expected and wanted. Not bursting with lots of flavor but I know that too from the reviews - and that's what I was looking for. Good cookies that were perfect with the spicy peaches that went with them!
This is the best sugar cookie recipe ever. My children and I made a batch of these wonderfully thick and soft cookies and they lasted less than a day. It's fantastic by my family.:):)
I think they are great! They are cake-like and very thick and soft. Also good if you add a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
These are as others reviewed soft cake-like cookies. I found them to be very tasty. You have to expect them to be cake-like, for the recipe calls for 3 eggs. If you don't want your cookie like cake decrease to 2 eggs instead of 3.
Absolutely terrible -- completely cake-like. If you want a cake, then make a cake, not cookies. I threw these all out and started over with a different recipe.
I love this recipe and the fact the cookies are cakelike. I do agree they're a little bland, but that's why there are spices....makes it perfect to give your own touch!! Thanks for the recipe :)
