Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cookies

Let’s hear it.

Who ate enough turkey to pop the button on their jeans? Who tried every single pie at dinner? Who licked the bowl of mashed potatoes clean?

Oh, just me? Huh.

Hope y’all had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Mine was wonderful. Full of food and family and all that good stuff.

Then my husband and I immediately went and spent every single penny in our bank account on Christmas gifts. ‘Tis the season!

After all the hard shopping work we did, I made us some cookies. Not just any cookies, though. These cookies aren’t the least bit cakey or chewy. Gooey really is the best descriptor. Even though these are nothing like a traditional chocolate chip cookie, they still make as one of my top 3 favorite chocolate chip cookies.

These Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cookies are basically Gooey Butter Cake in cookie form with some chocolate chips tossed in.
