Servings: 1
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

1  Cup  Butter
1  Cup  Powdered Sugar
1/4  Teaspoon  Salt
1  Teaspoon  Vanilla
2 1/4  Cups  Flour
6  Oz.  Semisweet Chocolate Chips, * see note
    Powdered Sugar

* [I think smaller chips, or mini-M&M's, would be better, but regular will work] Cream butter and 1 cup powdered sugar until well blended. Gradually add salt, vanilla and flour (mixture will be stiff). Stir in chocolate pieces. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten balls with fork. Bake at 350 F for 12 to 15 minutes until set but not brown. While hot, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Available by mail order.] [I made these cookies, and found them very easy. The dough isn't sticky, so rolling out the balls isn't a chore. They were a big hit when I brought them to the club; they went quickly. The batch made two cookie-sheets full. Next time I think I'll double the recipe.] March 1995, Chaz Bade
