Chocolate Chip Decorated Cookies for My Cookie

Do you like chocolate chips cookies? Do you love decorating cookies? Than this is a recipe for you!

Last December as I was rolling out gingerbread dough, my oldest daughter, nicknamed COOKIE, I'm pretty sure you'll guess why, said "if only it was rolled chocolate chip cookie dough." I said "that will be a great idea". With that in mind, I had to place it in my to do list and planned it for February.

If you already have a favorite sugar cookie recipe, you can add 1½ cup of mini-chips and follow the steps like usual. I made a few modifications to my sugar cookie recipe and here it is, a rolled chocolate chip cookie dough for you to bake and decorate at home. I made a few changes to my cookies dough and they are marked with an *.

Chocolate Mini-Chip Cookies

1 cup of butter or margarine (8 oz = 205 g)
¼ cup granulated sugar *
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 ½ teaspoons of  vanilla extract
3 ½ cups of  flour
½ teaspoon of salt
1 ½ cup of semi -sweet mini-chocolate chips *

1. Cream butter and sugar until pale yellow and creamy (about 3 minutes). Add vanilla and egg yolk, beat until mixed.

2.Sift flour and salt together, and  to the butter mixture one cup at a time until fully incorporated (you may not need all the flour). Fold in the mini-chocolate chips. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. 

3. After the hour, remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion of dough to ⅛ - ¼ inch (¼ - ½ cm) thick between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or parchment paper. Place back into the fridge for at least two hours.

4. Preheat oven to 350 º F (175 ° C). Working with one portion of dough at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), cut the dough with sharp cookie cutters, and place on baking trays. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack before decorating.

Yields: 25 +, 2 ½ inch cookies. Why the +, well some little hands managed to reach a few before I had a chance to count them.

a) I have used regular sized chips and they worked well, although the mini-chips make it easier to roll out.
b) These cookies come out super delicious and you won't be able to stop eating or baking them. I will not take responsibility for that, lol.
