12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies- Chocolate Sour Cream Cookies

We're half way there baby!! That's right! It's week 6!
I keep finding new cookies I want to make and really need to start focusing! 
It is so much fun to be a part of this group again! 

I found these a few weeks ago over on my friend Branny's blog. I loved these little cookies as did my family. Surprisingly, these have chocolate chips in them and Branny included almonds in hers . I'm not a nut person, so I didn't add them.

I find that it is always nice to have different types and textures of cookies during the holidays and I would definitely make this cookie again!

These sound delicious. I have never tried a cookie with sour cream in it. I will have to give these a try.
