Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment
Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and vanilla with an electric
mixer until fluffy. Add flour and salt and mix until the dough comes
together. Stir in the chocolate chips. If dough is too soft, chill it
until you can work it easily with your hands.
Scoop 1 tablespoon balls of dough and place on prepared cookie
Bake cookies for 7-10 minutes until bottoms are just slightly brown.
Remove from oven and cool for just a minute, until you can handle
them. Fill a small bowl with powdered sugar and roll each cookie in
the sugar until coated. Place on a rack to cool. (Once cookies are
cooled, you may want to re-roll them in more powdered sugar.)
