Author: Sam Merritt from sugarspunrun

  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter softened (340g)
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar 105g
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose (plain) flour (375g)
  • 2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • Additional powdered sugar for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper*.
  2. Place butter in the bowl of a stand mixer (or you can use a large bowl and an electric mixer) and beat until creamy.
  3. Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and salt, and beat again (start on low speed and then increase to high) until the mixture is creamy and well-combined.
  4. Gradually add all-purpose flour until ingredients are well incorporated (be sure to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl!). 
  5. Add mini chocolate chips and use a spatula or your mixer on low speed to stir them into your cookie dough (dough will be stiff).
  6. Scoop cookie dough by approximately 1 Tablespoon and roll between your hands to form a smooth ball. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and place cookie dough balls at least 1" apart.
  7. Bake on 375F (190C) for 10-12 minutes or until bottom edges are just beginning to turn light golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and sprinkle/sift powdered sugar overtop cookies while they are still warm.
  9. Allow to cool and enjoy!
