While it's been around for years, this recipe remains enjoyable to this day. A co-worker prepared these at a cookie exchange a while back...they were the biggest hit of the party.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:39 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Combine the flour, poppy seeds and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
  • 2. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in the center of each.
