TWD: Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies

To begin with: These are not my favourite cookies. They taste like gingerbread or lebkuchen (not sure if there is a difference), event though I did omit the cinnamon.

Maybe it is my recent non-enthusiasm for chocolate. Maybe it is because I am not a huge fan of soft cookies in general and my cookies need "pieces" in it - more than some sprinkled dried cherries (what I used instead of the raisins. The chocolate-cherry combo just won me over when me made the Chocolate Biscotti some weeks ago).

After all - I like cake, I like cookies, I like sour cream, but the combination is not made for me. This is pretty sad, as they are easy to make.  They look a bit like Macaron shells, so maybe they are useful for "false macarons"?

But tastes are different, so let's see what my co-workers will say about them!

This week's "Tuesdays with Dorie" recipe was chosen by Spike of Spike Bakes. Go to her page for the recipe, or have a look at Dorie's book on page 160.

P.S.: Am I the onyl one who sees a comic-cat in the picture above? And a pig in the right picture???

  1. Sorry these weren't a hit for you. They look great and I can definitely see the cat and pig you're talking about! :)

  2. ha! I love the cat and pig! I wasn't a huge fan of these on their own but I thought they were perfect with filling.

  3. I do see the cat and the pic. Cute. These weren't a fav with us either. Ah, well. Cannot be all good all the time.
