This is one of my favorite cookies! So quick and easy! This is best with real butter, don't cheat this recipe with a lesser type!
Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies
1 c. unsalted butter
3/4 c. icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c. semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, I actually like to chop my bulk chocolate.
Beat the butter in a bowl with sugar and vanilla until creamy Add the salt and flour and mix to combine, add chocolate chips.
Spoon the dough onto a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a log. Cut into two logs. Roll in the plastic wrap and refrigerate for 45 minutes or more.
Preheat the oven to 300 F
Remove one log and slice into 1/4 inch slices and place on the cookie sheet, one inch apart.
Bake the cookies until they are a pale tan color, about 15-20 minutes. Let them cool on the cookie sheet on rack for 5 minutes then move to rack to completely cool.
I serve these along side of ice cream for a little extra treat!
You can store in airtight container or freeze the in freezer bag. You can also freeze the dough logs well wrapped and in a freezer bag.
