Tea Cake Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2/3 cups walnuts, finely chopped
2 cups (12 oz. pkg). chocolate chips (divided 1-1/2 and 1/2 cups)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Beat butter and powdered sugar together until creamy.  Add the flour and nuts.  Stir in 1-1/2 cups of chips.  Roll dough into 1" balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until a light golden brown.  Cook for 2 minutes then remove off baking sheet.

Melt the remaining chip.  I put them in a zip loc bag and either put the bag in boiling water or in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Once melted, knead the bag and then cut a small hole in the edge.  Then drizzle the chocolate over the tops of the cookies.  Chill until chocolate is set.
