Domino Cookies

Yield

Makes 3 dozen cookies

Ingredients

1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
All-purpose flour (optional)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheets.
  2. Remove dough from wrapper. Cut dough into 4 equal sections. Reserve 1 section; refrigerate remaining 3 sections.
  3. Roll reserved dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Sprinkle with flour to minimize sticking, if necessary. Cut out 9 (2-1/2X1-3/4-inch) rectangles using sharp knife. Place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Score each cookie across middle with sharp knife. Gently press chocolate chips, point side down, into dough to resemble various dominos. Repeat with remaining dough, scraps and chocolate chips.
  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

Tip

Use these adorable cookies as a learning tool for kids. They can count the number of chocolate chips in each cookie and arrange them in lots of ways: highest to lowest, numerically or even solve simple math problems. As a treat, they can eat the cookies afterwards.
