CHOCOLATE CHIP SUGAR COOKIES — These sweet, buttery cookies are studded with miniature chocolate chips. Perfect for the holidays, or any time of year!
It’s holiday baking season, and these Chocolate Chip Sugar Cookies are sure to be a hit on your Christmas cookie trays this year!
Of course, this is a cookie that’s well received any time of year, but with their dainty, buttery texture (almost like a shortbread cookie) I especially love making these during the holiday season.
These cookies are a little bit sugar cookie, a little bit shortbread cookie, and a little bit chocolate chip cookie. It’s like enjoying three delicious cookies in one, and the combination is heavenly!
Besides being delicious, these drop-style cookies are so easy to make, and they also freeze well, which are big bonuses in my book when it comes to Christmas cookie making.
These chocolate chip cookies are unique and tasty, without being difficult to make, and of course go perfectly with a tall glass of cold milk.
Because of their shortbread-like texture, I really prefer to make these cookies with mini chocolate chips. But you could certainly use regular chocolate chips and they would still be delicious.
You could also add finely chopped nuts, such as pecans, to the batter. The dough for this cookie would actually lend it self to all kinds of fun mix-ins–toffee bits, crushed peppermint, mini M&M’s. The possibilities are endless.
In fact, you can mix up a double batch and make several kinds of cookies, just by changing up your mix-ins. It’s a great way to save time during the busy holiday season.
Of course, nothing can compare to a traditional chocolate chip cookie, but these are a fun twist on a classic, and my whole family loves them.
If you are a cookie lover like me, I think you’re going to love these Chocolate Chip Sugar Cookies. Happy baking!
