Marble Cookies

2 1/4 C. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 C. packed brown sugar
1/2 C. granulated sugar
1 stick slightly salted butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 C sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.
2. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl.
3. Beat together butter and sugars in a large bowl until well blended. Add egg, sour cream, and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy. Add the flour mixture and blend until just combined.
4. Melt chocolate chips in a bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water (or in a double boiler). Cool chocolate for a few minutes, then pour into the cookie mixture. Using a wooden spoon, very lightly fold chocolate into the cookie mixture. Do not completely mix.
5. Drop rounded tablespoons of the mixture spaced 2 inches apart onto the baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Transfer to a flat surface to cool.

Yield: About 2-3 dozen
