  • 2 sticks (16 Tablespoons) salted butter, room temperature If you don't have salted butter, then increase your total salt to 1 teaspoon below
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 and 1/3 cups all-purpose flour sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt If you use unsalted butter above, use 1 teaspoon of salt instead
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Tablespoon vegetable oil


  • Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Generously grease or line a standard 8"x8" baking pan and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, cream the butter on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the sugar and mix for another 5 minutes (do not skimp on this step! Make sure you really mix for 5 minutes.).
  • Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour and salt. Mix well until everything comes together and appears slightly crumbly.
  • Press the dough into your prepared pan and poke holes all over the top with a fork.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until light golden in color.
  • Allow the cookies to set until cool.
  • Slice into small squares.
  • In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and stir in the oil. Mix well until smooth.
  • Dip the cookie squares into the chocolate and set them on a sheet of waxed or parchment paper. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.
