The problem started when I decide to halve the recipe. I of course didn't remember to halve all the ingredients as I added them so I scooped an arbitrary amount of baking powder and baking soda out after adding the full amount. Blasphemy! Then I immediately messed up again by adding the full amount of sour cream. Oops. So, I added a bit more flour to attempt balance it out. Who says baking is an exact science? The cookies were (predictably) too sticky to roll out as is tradition. Instead I made these (amazingly unattractive) lumps filled with jam, rather than two neat rolled out circles filled with jam. They were delicious!
Then I got tired of rolling sticky jam balls & decided to try the mini muffin tin, fashioning the dough as tart shells:Some jam filling, some chocolate chips, some nutella! They turned out a bit more cakey tasting but quite good as well. Looks like all those food science classes might have helped out! Although I suppose I should still owe Tim the cookies I promised since these weren't quite up to standard. Or maybe I will just make my person Christmas favorites instead, the chocolate pudding raspberry cookies!
