Chocolate Chip Cut-Out Cookies

When I was a teenager I lived in Mexico, and I used to receive every month an issue of Seventeen Magazine, and It was so exciting going to check the mailbox to see if the magazine was there, I loved to see all the fashion trends, make up and all those girly things, and once in a while they shared a recipe  and off course when I saw the Chocolate cookie recipe I had to try it!!

We were not able to buy chocolate chip cookies in the super markets  in my hometown at that time,  you have to ask somebody to bring you some when they were traveling to USA, it was a LUXURY to have chocolate chip cookies with a nice glass of milk!!

So one day I found the recipe in The Seventeen Magazine, actually I  still have it!!

And try it and OMGsh I love them and everybody love them too!!!

So I baked a lot of them for my friends, I sold some and eat some, maybe just one or two ; ) 

So today I am sharing with you how to make chocolate chip cut out cookies. 

To decorate cookies, you need a smooth surface, right? So you just need to add some chocolate chips to the foolproof cookie recipe. 

Here is what you will need:

* Foolproof cookie recipe
* 1 cup of chocolate chips
* Rolling pin 
* Cookie cutter
* Coffe bean grinder


1)  Put your chocolate chips in the grinder and make them smaller.

2)  Follow the instructions of the foolproof recipe and when you cookie dough is done, add the chocolate chips from step #1 and mix with your hands  until all is  even incorporate. 

3)  Roll out the dough and cut out your cookies.

4)  Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes, let them cool..put them in a seal tight container in a very safe place, because, if someone see them they will eat them and you will not have nothing left to decorate!!

5) Decorate as you desire!!

I Love this LOL cookie cutter, perfect for these delicious chocolate cookies, I think my daughter will be so happy to have a cookie for dessert. 

Happy Chocolate Chip Day!!!

  1. I love that you grind up the chocolate chips for this cookie dough recipe and your bright icing colours are a lot of fun!

    1. I like to have a smooth surface on the top of the cookie that I will decorate, so I think if I leave the whole chip it would no be smooth, I know it will be more delicious!!! I like to bit the chips!!!

  2. This sounds like a wonderful recipe for cut-out cookies! I love the pretty colors you used. I also used to get Seventeen magazine when I was a teen (long time ago!), and I loved it! :)

    1. I used to receive them a long, long, long, long, 1/2 long time can figure out my age if the value of Long= sounds like a math problem right?? I know hard for me to say how old I am!!! I hope you can try this recipe sometime.
