These little Chocolate Chip Tea Cookies are a special treat! Not only are they easy to make, they take a short amount of time to come together. Cookies are a year-round tradition for me, but during this time of year, it is nice to have the cookie trays filled with sweet and delicious treats such as these little cookies!
Not only would these cookies make a nice addition to an assorted cookie tray, they are nice to enjoy with an afternoon coffee or tea. Hence, the name Chocolate Chip Tea Cookies. 🙂
Another bonus! They are little, so you can enjoy more of these cookies at a time. Or if they are on a cookie tray, they leave room to try the other cookies too.
However you want to try these cookies, they will put that chocolate chip cookie smile on your face!
Chocolate Chip Tea Cookies
- 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar sifted
- pinch of salt
- 1 t pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter, powdered sugar and salt with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (about 2 to 3 minutes). Add the vanilla and mix until fully combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour just until combined. Do not over mix.
- Using a spatula, stir in the chocolate chips.
- Shape into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until set. The cookies will still be pale. These cookies are not meant to turn golden.
- Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then move to cool completely on wire racks.
