Marble cookies

Love these cookies.

Yesterday Kaitlin came over with her cute little nephew and we made cookies.  She brought a Mrs. Field's cookie cookbook, which I would recommend.  They had some awesome cookies...but being that we didn't pick a cookie ahead of time, we had to look for normal-ish cookies...cookies that we would already have all of the ingredients for.  We found these marble cookies, and just went for it.

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1 large egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl.
In mixing bowl cream sugar and butter together.  Add sour cream, egg, and vanilla and mix until light and fluffy.  Add the flour mixture and mix on low.  Do not over mix!
In a double boiler melt the chocolate chips over hot, not boiling, water.  Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.  Fold into batter with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.  Do not mix chocolate completely into cookie dough.

Drop dough onto ungreased cookie sheet by tablespoons, about 2 inches apart.  Cook 23-25 minutes.  Do not brown.  Move to a wire rack to cool.

I think the reason I like these so much is because they are similar to chocolate chip cookies, but without the chunks.  I like that the chocolate is just mixed in instead.
