Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

I have made these cookies many times since printing the recipe in December 2013 from Starbucks.  They have not posted it again but I believe it is from the cookbook by La Boulage:  Café Cooking at Home which you can purchase from the Starbucks on-line store.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies
(Makes 30 Cookies)

1 and ¼ cups (2 and ½ sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon water
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 egg for egg wash (if desired)

Gather your ingredients.

Cut the butter into cubes.  In a large bowl, mix the sugar and butter with a wooden spoon until well combined.

Add the flour and salt and use your hands to mix until you have dough with a crumbly consistency.  Add the vanilla extract and water, and mix again with your hands.

Add the chocolate chips and mix.

Roll the dough into one large log.  Cut in half lengthwise, and roll each piece to create two equal logs, about 2-inches in diameter.   Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Cut the dough into rounds 1/3 inch thick.  Arrange as many as you can fit on a nonstick baking sheet or parchment paper-lined sheet.  Brush with egg wash, if desired.  Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden brown.  Repeat with the remaining dough.
