Sour cream cookies are chewy cookies. They are more like small scones with a cake-like texture. They tend to be a little puffy when baked and are a slightly soft to the touch. Plain sour cream cookies are delicious on their own but I like to add some dried fruits and nuts to mine. These cookies are excellent for a mid-morning or afternoon snack.

I always have a variety of nuts and dried fruits in my pantry for my bread making. The pistachios needed to be used and so I decided to pair it with dried mangoes. They go quite well together and I love the color contrast, giving these pale colored cookies an almost festive look.

Drop tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto baking sheet. Flatten the top slightly. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 15 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack.

These cookies are great with a cup of tea or coffee. I had mine with coconut mango tea this morning. They were so good together!
