The 12 Days of Christmas Cookies - Chocolate Chip Snowballs

Day Five of the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies is a interesting twist on a traditional Russian Tea Cake. I like to call them Snowball Cookies but this one has chocolate chips in it! So delicious and by far the easiest recipe to make. 

Directions

Preheat oven to 375

Mix butter, sugar and vanilla together. Add flour and salt and mix until the dough comes together. Add the chocolate chips by hand. Put dough in the fridge for an hour.

Once chilled roll tablespoon size pieces of dough into balls and place on greased cookie sheet

Bake cookies for 7-10 minutes, until bottoms are brown. They may look under baked but do not over bake. 

Let cool enough to be able to handle them and then roll them in powdered sugar an set on cooling rack. Once cookies are cool roll them again in the powdered sugar to get the snowball look.
