Tea Cake Cookies Recipe 2

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2/3 cups walnuts, finely chopped
2 cups (12 oz. pkg). chocolate chips (divided 1-1/2 and 1/2 cups)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Beat butter and powdered sugar together until creamy. Add the
flour and nuts. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of chips. Roll dough into 1" balls and
place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until a light golden brown. Cook for 2 minutes
then remove off baking sheet.

Melt the remaining chip. I put them in a zip loc bag and either put the bag in
boiling water or in the microwave for 30 seconds. Once melted, knead the
bag and then cut a small hole in the edge. Then drizzle the chocolate over
the tops of the cookies. Chill until chocolate is set.
