Sour Cream Snickerdoodles

These are the cookies I made yesterday while involved with the very successful 5-Minute Artisan Bread (that we're still swooning over).  First off, I have to tell you, that I am not a particular fan of Snickerdoodles.  I always found them to be good, but nothing special.  My husband, on the other hand, LOVES them, so I decided to make this recipe for him.  I did so, however, with great trepidation because as a lover of Snickerdoodles, he is a Snickerdoodle purist.  He doesn't like anyone to mess with something he considers the apex in crisp sugar cookie deliciousness.  Knowing this, and knowing what sour cream can do to a cookie I wasn't quite sure he'd be pleased with the results.  As it turned out, we were both pleased!  I sampled them warm from the oven and they were like little cinnamon clouds.  They reminded me somewhat of the teacakes I used to have as a child before my mother lost the recipe and stopped making them.  I'm a big fan of the crisp cookie, but these cinnamon softies won my heart.  Jim likes them as well.  They were not at all what he expected, but still surprisingly good, and sometimes it's nice to be surprised.
I found the recipe (and a wonderful tutorial) on the La Kocinera blog.

They certainly do. I wouldn't mind one myself. I have a notion they are all gone by now, darn!!! The addition of sour cream is quite intriguing, Pattie. I'm delighted to know it works!!!

Thanks for sharing...
