Serves: 42 cookies


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup Daisy Sour Cream
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar


In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter and sour cream. Beat on medium speed until creamy. Beat in the molasses and egg. Add all remaining ingredients except for the 1/4 cup sugar. Beat on low speed until well-mixed. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour for easier handling. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets. Place 1/4 cup sugar in small bowl. Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar to coat. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Press with flat bottom of drinking glass or metal measuring cup to flatten slightly. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Remove to cooling racks.

It is amazing that you can bake with sour cream I have heard about it before but never tried it till now. I love baking with it and might start using this in my other cookie recipes it seems like it holds the cookies together better. And it's a plus I love sour cream anyway. I would highly suggest trying this if you haven't. Disclaimer I got this for free for my honest review.

Using Daisy sour cream brings the best taste ever. Daisy help makes these cookies moist so they do not dry out.
