Lazy Logs

  • 1/2 C Butter
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 C flour
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Melt butter and chocolate in saucepan. Cool. Add remaining ingredients; mix well.

Shape dough into rolls 3/4 inch in diameter. Wrap in wax paper. Chill several hours or overnight.

Cut into 2 inch logs; place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

When cool, frost adding sprinkles, coconut, finely chopped nuts, etc.

These freeze well before frosting, so can be made ahead of time.

Two variations:

In place of chocolate add: 1) 1 C peanut butter (my dad’s favorite) or 2) 2 tsp almond extract (my husband’s favorite!) You may have to adjust flour slightly. Or if like me–chocolate always wins!! Whichever you choose–enjoy.

A family favorite for many years and usually the first cookie to disappear.
