One Bite Butter Balls

These cookies are a cross between a shortbread cookie and a soft chocolate chip cookie. There a must-eat-one-bite-treat that have a soft buttery texture to them. I prefer to use miniature chocolate chips for this recipe because there cuter and easier to handle but you can substitute them for other chips or nuts as well.

One Bite Butter Balls

1/2 Cup butter (softened)
1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
2 Tbs white sugar (or just enough to coat outside of balls)

1) Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper
2) In mixing bowl cream butter for 1min
3) Add sugar and vanilla, and beat well until light and fluffy
4) Add flour and stir with wooden spoon until well combined
5) Add chips (or other alternative of choice)
6) Form dough using 1Tbs utensil and roll into balls, then roll in sugar
7) Bake for 20min, then cool on wire rack and enjoy!
