Still, there is more to love about these nutty cookies. These sour cream cookies freeze well without crumbling even when you just throw them in a zip-lock freezer bag. This means that you can make them ahead and always have a constant supply in the freezer for when your sweet tooth demands attention or when unexpected company arrives.
