Marbled Chocolate Cookies

It's been a while since my last recipe was posted, in fact I have been reminded that it's been 5 months. Thanks to the promptings of Argentum Vulgaris from Things that Fizz and Stuff.  I finally have a recipe to share.  He's done a blog review of "What's for Dinner Mum?" and "EarthWalkerfamily" too over at Bloggers Cafe!  So with the help of my son Sam another recipe is finally going up.  Sam has made these cookies many times, I think they have become his signature dish.  They are a really yummy chocolatey treat especially warm from the oven.  Enjoy!!

Marbled Chocolate Cookies

                             2 cups plain flour
                             1/2 teaspoon baking powder
                             1/4 teaspoon salt
                             1/2 cup brown sugar
                             1/2 cup white sugar
                             1/2 cup softened butter
                             1/2 cup sour cream
                             1 teaspoon vanilla
                             1 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 160°C/300°F.  Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

Combine sugars in a large bowl, add softened butter and mix until it forms a grainy paste.  Add egg, sour cream and vanilla, mix until fully combined.

Melt the chocolate chips, if you're using dark chocolate just melt slowly in the microwave for a couple of minutes, stirring then heating until fully melted.

Pour melted chocolate over the cookie batter and lightly fold through, don't mix in completely as you want to get the marbled effect of the white cookie dough and chocolate ripples.

Drop spoonfuls onto a lined cookie tray and bake for 19 minutes.

One of the rewards of making cookies, you get to lick the beater!

And you also get to eat the cookies warm, fresh from the oven.
