BEAT butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and salt in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg yolk. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in 1 1/2 cups morsels. Divide dough in half; cover. Chill for 1 hour or until firm.

BAKE in preheated 350° F. oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Spread with frosting; pipe with melted chocolate.

TO PIPE CHOCOLATE: Place remaining morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; knead. Microwave for additional 10 seconds; knead until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to pipe chocolate.

If I could give this recipe 0 stars I would. The cookies are not at all sweet and honestly the flavor is not at all close to what the original tollhouse recipe tastes like. Back to looking for recipes! This one is a definite no!

These were a waste of time and ingredients

This came out as a powdery mess that wasn't even a little workable.

I made these for a party and they were a huge hit. I used regular-sized chocolate chips and it worked fine, you just use less of them. Awesome recipe!

Mini Chip Cut-Out Cookies

Since my husband's birthday is Valentine's Day, my youngest son makes these, places them in a heart shaped tin with a homemade card attached. Then the 2 of them will eat cookies together all day long.
