Foothill House Sweet Dreams Cookies
from the Foothill House B&B
1 c. butter, room temp.
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg, room temp.
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
12 oz. package chocolate chips
1 c. powdered/confectioners sugar
- Cream butter using an electric mixer. Beat in brown sugar, then the egg, and finally the vanilla extract.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and pecans (dough will be very stiff). Refrigerate until firm (about 1 hour).
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and lightly grease cookie sheets.
- Place all of the powdered sugar in a small bowl. Remove dough from fridge and roll into 1" balls. Roll each ball in the powdered sugar, place on cookie sheet, and bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on sheet for 5 min. before transferring.
