Polka Dot Cookies

My boyfriend went on a Cookie spree today. I woke to the the smell of baking cookies and the sound of him singing Christmas carols along with Dean Martin and Bing Crosby. Between us, we filled three tins and two plastic baggies with peanut butter cookies, sourdough chocolate chip cookies, and these delicious Polka Dot Cookies. Santa is going to gain ten pounds at our apartment alone with all these goodies. --AnglophileLV

Polka Dot Cookies
Ingredients (Original Recipe Yields around 50 cookies)

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the white chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are set.
