Good Taste: chocolate chocolate chip butterball cookies

Friends, you are in for a treat. Well, if you make these cookies you’re in for a treat.

These are Chocolate Chocolate Chip Butterball Cookies that were made by my friend Vicky. She entered them in a holiday cookie contest and I offered to take pictures of the cookies for her. It was grueling work. You know - take pictures, eat cookies, eat cookies… exhausting!

The cookies are melt in your mouth good. They’re not overly sugary sweet. You can taste the rich chocolate cookie, the semisweet chocolates and the hint of nuts. And the dusting of powdered sugar makes them perfect for the holidays!

Blog Vickys CookiesHere’s the recipe if you want to make some of these. Be prepared to print out extra copies of the recipe because it will be requested if you share the cookies.

The Holiday Cookie Contest is on the Los Angeles Times Food page. If you feel inclined, you can vote for my friend’s cookies. Trust me, they deserve to win!

And if you make these for the holidays….

and you celebrate Christmas, don’t forget to leave some out for Santa on Christmas Eve. 

Thanks for visiting!
