One of my recent cookbooks, Milk Bar Life, not only has great recipes but is a fun read.
This recipe for sour cream cookies is among one of my favorites.
They are crunchy when you bite into them, but then you hit the soft, almost cake-like interior. They're not too sweet.
If you'd like them a little sweeter, you can dip them into the optional sour cream glaze.
I baked them on the middle rack of the oven but they did take a little longer to bake than the recipe says. MIght be my oven.

Sour Cream Cookies; Milk Bar Life
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1 /1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
----Sour Cream Glaze
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup sour cream

minutes. Add the egg and sour cream and mix until incorporated, about 1
minute. Add the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and mix until
well combined, about 30 seconds.
Though rather wet, the cookie dough is dangerously good at this
With a 1 or 2 tablespoon ice cream scoop, scoop the dough onto greased or
lined baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between scoops. Or, if you don't have
a small scoop, use a tablespoon, but work to make even smooth scoops to
mimic a scoop when dropping the dough, as the cookies spread and can end up
Bake for 7 to 9 minutes for smaller cookies or 9 to 11 minutes for large
ones, until the tops are golden brown. Allow to cool completely before
removing them from the baking sheet.
If glazing the cookies, dunk the top of each cookie in the glaze. Or, if
you're worried about getting your fingers dirty, use the back of a spoon or
butter knife to spread the glaze atop each one.
