Valentine Cookies.. Mini Chocolate Chip Cut Out cookies


I am in love with Sweet Sugar Belle . Callye aka Sweet Sugar Belle makes the most amazing cookies..one truly talented lady!   In my general blog stalking fashion I stumbled on her "Mini Chocolate Chip Cut Out cookie" recipe and could not wait to mix up my own batch. It made about 2 dozen 3" cookies.  The mini chip allows the cookies to bake with a flat surface versus a big chip that would make the cookie bumpy for royal icing decorating. I used sharp metal cutters (copper) as she suggested. I don't think plastic cutters would have worked to cut through any chips. I also made standard cut out cookies (no chill recipe).  The recipe is below but please be sure to check out SugarBelle's blog, it is fabulous!  Oh and I so want her cookie cutter collection but we'd have to move because I do not have that much space in our small house!
If you haven't tried Kuhn Rikon decorating bottles, you should.. I love mine!
(Note: a year later I found that I like CK Squeeze bottles even more!!)











Sugarbakers’ Chocolate Mini-Chip Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter
⅓ cup granulated sugar
½ cup light-brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 ½ cup all-purpose flour {Sugarbelle suggests to try 2 cups first, and add more flour if it seems too sticky)
½ tsp salt
1 ½ cup semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips

Directions:
Cream together the butter, granulated sugar & light-brown sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolk. Sift the flour and salt.  Add the flour, one cup at a time until time until mixed.  The recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups but I only used 2 cups.  Once the flour and butter mixture are completely mixed, add the mini chips by hand so they don't get broken up.  Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.  Preheat your oven to 350°.   When the 30 minutes is up, roll out your cookies on lightly floured surface (I use powder sugar instead of flour).  Bake for 10-12 minutes.
