Chocolaty Shortcake Wedding Cookies
1 cup butter softened
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups all purpose flour (not self rising)
1 cup very good milk chocolate chips (Guittard is a good one)
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer at low to medium speed until light in color.
Gradually add the flour and mix till well combined. Stir in chips and chopped pecans by hand.
Shape into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake 13-15 minutes. Cookies will still be pale in color. Let the cookies cool for about 2 minutes then remove from cookie sheet and roll in powdered sugar.
