Lemon Chocolate Chip Meltaway Cookies
These are practically the definition of a summer cookie. Small round lemon cookies dotted with chocolate chips and a double coat of powdered sugar. Yum. I guess they could be called a lot of things, snowball cookies, tea cakes, but I decided to call them meltaways. They do truly melt in your mouth. They’d go perfectly with a cup of tea 🙂
Ingredients: Cookies (adapted from here) *Makes 25-30 cookies
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Mix in vanilla extract and lemon zest.
Mix in flour and salt.
Mix in chocolate chips.
Chill for 15 minutes, then roll into 1 inch balls and place on un-greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. While still warm, roll the cookies in powdered sugar. When cool, roll the cookies in powdered sugar again.

I tried to bake those powdered sugar cookies once, and I burnt it. It’s more like a powdered sugar stone.
