Number of Servings: 10


    2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
    1 1/2 cups sugar, plus more for sprinkling
    1 large egg
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1/4 cup sour cream


Smaller cookies will require shorter cooking time.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with one rack in upper third and another in lower third. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda; set aside.

Using an electric mixer on medium-high, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 2 to 4 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; beat well to combine.

With mixer on low, add half the flour mixture, followed by sour cream, then remaining flour mixture; mix just until smooth. (Dough will be stiff; you may need to finish mixing it by hand with a wooden spoon.)

Drop mounds of dough, each equal to about 3 tablespoons, 3 to 4 inches apart, onto two ungreased baking sheets; sprinkle with sugar. Bake until edges of cookies are just firm and tops are barely beginning to brown, 20 to 25 minutes, rotating sheets once halfway through. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool.

Serving Size: Makes 10 large cookies, using an ice cream scoop

Number of Servings: 10
