Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies

It seems as though every Sunday night, I get the craving for something fattening and filled with sugar.  This past Sunday, I found these little morsels in a cookbook that I borrowed from the library.  Good Golly Miss Molly!  This recipe is a keeper!  They have a buttery taste and a texture that melts in your mouth.  They aren't chewy like regular chocolate chip cookies, but they are a little taste of Heaven.  They're easy to make as well with only 5 ingredients.

1 c butter (no substitutes)
1/2 t vanilla
2 c flour
1 c powdered sugar
1 c semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

Melt the butter in the microwave and let it cool.  Stir in the vanilla.
 Combine the flour and sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Add the butter. 
 Stir until it turns into coarse crumbs.  Add the chocolate chips.  The dough will be very crumby.  Use your hand to take a small handful of dough and form into a ball.  You'll have to squeeze the dough as you form it into a ball so it won't crumble while it bakes. 
 Flatten the cookies with the palm of your hand.  Bake in a 375 for 12 minutes.  They'll come out looking like they went in. 
They'll stay good for days.  Your loved ones will thank you for these.  :)
