A First

I had no intentions of posting any recipes in my blog. I'm not a recipe type of person so naturally this isn't really a recipe type of blog. But demands have been made, so after 124 posts I am finally posting a recipe.

Debbie's grandma used to make shortbread chocolate chip cookies and Debbie suddenly missed the cookies and wanted to try making them. They were really good and are now really gone! (At least they would have been if not for the batch she made tonight!)

So without further ado, enjoy the recipe. (And come on over if you want some of the finished product.)

Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients, then stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips.
3. Roll or scoop dough into walnut sized balls. Place them on unprepared cookie sheets 1 1/2 inches apart. Flatten cookies slightly. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until light golden brown. Remove from sheets to cool on racks.

Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter (no substitutes)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate
1. Melt butter in a microwave or double boiler; stir in vanilla. Cool completely. In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar; stir in butter mixture and chocolate chips (mixture will be crumbly).
2. Shape into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets; flatten slightly. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool on wire racks.

Those totally look and sound yummy! I hope you had a batch of those for New Years! I will definitely give these a try. Wish me luck, because I'm horrible at baking. :)

So glad you posted this so we didn't have to ask for the recipe! Tell Debbie how much we enjoyed them!

Thank you to you and to Debbie for posting them, even though it doesn't fit your blog. :) I didn't realize how hard it would be on you when I asked. hehe
