Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies (TWD)

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Spike of Spike Bakes: Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies.  I almost didn't make this one because there were some lukewarm reviews of these cookies on the P&Q.  However, the recipe looked pretty simple, so I decided to forge ahead.

I included both raisins and dried cherries in my cookies, and like Dorie, found that biting into the little bits of dried fruit was wonderful.  I thought the dried cherries were better than the raisins in this cookie, just because they were tart and stood out more than the raisins did.  I can definitely see how those who omitted the dried fruit found the cookies to be a little plain.  (However, if you do make these cookies without the dried fruit, because they have a very cake-like crumb, they do make for the base of some fantastic chocolate whoopie pies.)

Thanks Spike, for hosting this week.  If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the TWD Blogroll, to see how everyone else enjoyed this chocolately treat! Also don't forget to enter my giveaway here before it ends on June 24th.
