Make This Recipe


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 Eggland's Best Eggs (Large)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 oz red food coloring
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Sprinkles


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. You can also use a hand mixer.

Add the eggs, vanilla sour cream and food coloring; beat until smooth.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until everything is evenly incorporated.

Use a cookie scoop, or a large spoon to drop rounds of dough on your cookie sheet, approximately 2 inches apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. The cookies may seem slightly too soft in the middle but they will be done.

Remove cookies to a cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting. Decorate with sprinkles if desired.
