Delicious Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies Recipe

I love to bake a wide variety of cookies for my family and this chocolate chip snowball cookies recipe happens to be my adult daughters and little grand daughter's favorite cookie recipe right now. I usually make them in the fall and around the holiday season but this spring they wanted me to bake a batch so I dug out my recipe and made a batch yesterday. This recipe will make approximately 4 1/2 dozen of cookies.

Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies Recipe

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar (powdered 10X sugar)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I use Watkins)
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
additional confectioner's sugar for rolling the cookies in

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the softened butter, confectioner's sugar, vanilla extract and salt with an electric mixer until the batter is creamy. Gradually beat in the all-purpose flour, a little bit at a time. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape the cookie dough into 1 1/2" diameter balls and place the cookie balls onto an ungreased cookie baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the oven until they are lightly browned. (nice light tan color). Remove them from the oven and let cool for 4-5 minutes. Roll the balls into the confectioner's sugar and place them on a cooled baking sheet to finish cooling. Store them in an air tight container.
