The original recipe makes shortbread bars. I'm sure they would have been delicious but I wasn't in the mood for bars. So I tweaked the recipe a teeny bit and made cookies. The dough was a bit sticky at first but after a short stay in the refrigerator it was easy to handle.
This recipe was incredibly fast and easy to prepare, only 5 ingredients! The cookies are buttery with just a bit of crunch and the chocolate drizzled on top adds just the right amount of extra sweetness.
- 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350. Beat butter and sugar in mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour, mix until well combined.
3. Using the microwave melt chocolate chips in microwave-safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds. This may take up to 2 minutes, depending your microwave.
