In honor of Fall, I thought I would make something warm and buttery. These are not the typical cookies you will see on every website. They are perfect for this time of year, and are a nice little change to traditional cookies. They are cakey, and caramelly, much like most Fall foods. They still have an airy lightness, from the sour cream. It truly is a baker's/pastry chef's secret weapon.
Enjoy these cookies, and don't get too carried away with all of the Holiday chaos!
Recipe from: Taste of Home
You will need (for cookies):
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar (sifted)
|Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper|
Cream together brown sugar and butter
|Beat in egg|
|Add sour cream, and mix well|
|In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.|
|Gradually add flour mixture to dough. Mix until just combined.|
|Drop dough onto baking sheet by the tablespoonful. Bake for 9-11 minutes. |
Allow cookies to cool completely, before frosting.
|Over low heat, melt butter. Add brown sugar, and stir occasionally.|
|Stir in milk, and bring to a boil.|
|Once it starts bubbling, remove from heat and stir in confectioner's sugar.|
|Spread on top of cooled cookies. The longer this frosting sits, |
the thicker it gets, so I recommend working somewhat quickly.
