Butter Cookie Recipe

Ingredients for Butter Cookies:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup pistachios, crushed

Directions for making Butter Cookies:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Do not grease your cookie sheets!

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whip together the softened butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and flour. Shape the dough into 2-inch long “fingers” and place them on the ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes or until they are slightly set – do not brown!

Let the cookies set on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Melt the chocolate chips by putting them in a glass bowl in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir until the chocolate is smooth.

Dip one end of the cooled cookies into the chocolate and press it lightly into the crushed pistachios. Set on parchment paper or wax paper until the chocolate is set. (Store at room temperature in an airtight container with wax paper or parchment paper between the layers of cookies.)
