"These are soft sugar-type cookies made with sourdough starter to give them a little extra tang."

1 3/4 cups
I used a whole wheat friendship bread starter that I had, and made these cookies vegan. Oil instead of the butter, flax instead of the eggs and I reduced the sugar by 1/4 c since I used a sweet starter. I put in maybe 1/2 c of chips into the batter, but actually like the dough without chocolate in it better. Next time I'd only add some cinnamon to the recipe and keep everything else the same.
These were okay. I found them lacking taste and consistency. The second time I made them I added chocolate chips, and that helped a bit. I don't think that I will be making them again.
These are very light and easy to make. A great way to use up extra sourdough starter. I think they need an "add-in", like chocolate chips, nuts or toffee chips. Very good.
I use the Amish Friendship Starter for this recipe. However, I make them into Snickerdoodles by topping the cookies with a mixture of 2 tablespoons of cinnamon to 1/2 cup sugar before baking. Yum!!!!!!! Adding an extra 1/4 cup of flour to the recipe mixture makes the cookies maintain their shape while baking.
these are good, I tasted the batter and it seemed very bland. added dried wild Maine blueberries, white chocolate chips and coconut and they tasted very good; sort of like a blueberry muffin. alot of versatility is allowed w/this recipe. cake-type texture. makes a big batch.
This is a very wet dough. I had to drop spoons full of the dough into sugar and cinnamon to make snickerdoodles. They spread a lot in the oven so make sure you leave plenty of room on your baking sheet. I am going to try adding a half cup of flour next time.
I made these today and they were quite good. I used butterscotch morsals as an add in and I added more flour as my starter was somewhat wet and the dough was quite soft. I would make them again. I think I will try adding a bit of orange zest and orange extract next time.
My mom always made these for us when we were growing up. She called them half-moons. She would turn them upside down and frost the flat part...half vanilla frosting and half chocolate. They didn't last long!!! Thanks for the recipe!!
