Mini Chip Snowball Cookies

Now today is actually national chocolates day but I forgot and ended up making cookies instead, but at least there is chocolate in the cookies. Well anyways I was craving something sweet, but I didn't know what I wanted to make. So I first went to my pantry to see what I had, then I visited While searching around I came across these really good looking cookies and it just so happened that I had all the ingredients as well. Lately every time I go into the kitchen to bake something I find out that I no longer have anymore of the ingredients and I usually don't find this out until I have already mixed some of the ingredients together. This usually happens because I have roommates and I never know if they finished the items until I need to use them myself. Well let me get back to these delicious cookies. They are called Mini Chip Snowball Cookies and they are so amazing. As they were coming out of the oven I kept sampling them. I think I eventually ended up eating ten by the time they were done. My boyfriend Tomas loved them as well, he ate a bunch too but not as bad as me. Well I hope you enjoy these delicious bites and don't say I didn't warn you can't stop eating them yourself. :)

Mini Chip Snowball Cookies
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 375*F. Beat the butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in the flour, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Shape level tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place on an ungreassed cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned. Remove from oven and after a couple of minutes transfer the cookies to a cooling rack. Dust some powdered sugar on top and enjoy. :)
