Mix dry ingredients. Cream the butter with the sugar, add the vanilla & eggs. Last add the dry ingredients & chocolate chips. Divide dough in half, press into 2 greased pie pans. Cook one at a time, 375 degrees for 15 minutes (or until starting to slightly golden on the edges), reduce heat to 325 degrees and cook until the center is set, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool & serve, or frost with butter cream frosting.
Buttercream frosting, this is my favorite recipe, from the Southern Living Cookbook, a staple cookbook in my house!
1/2 (4 Tablespoons) stick of salted butter, softened
1/2 (4 Tablespoons)stick of sweet cream butter, softened
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons heavy cream
Beat with a mixer, blend until smooth. Add more/less heavy cream as needed. Frost the cookie :)
