Butter Cookies

Chocolate chip butter cookies

These cookies have few ingredients and were easy to whip up. The texture slightly reminded me of an italian wedding cookie. We added extra chocolate on top because …..well…..chocolate makes everything better and we put extra chocolate on everything.

1 cup butter, no substitutes
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour (I used King Arthurs)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup chocolate chips

Melt butter in a microwave and then stir in vanilla. Allow the mixture to cool completely. In a large bowl combine flour and sugar, then mix in butter and chocolate chips. The mixture may be a little crumbly. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten the ball slightly and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

The kids loved these, but I think I’ll stick with a more traditional chocolate chip recipe.
