Cookie Recipes Chocolate

Are chocolate pinwheel cookies any good? And if so, is this recipe all right? (Other questions inside)?

http://www.momswhothink.com/christmas-cookies/christmas-cookie-recipes-chocolate/2.html
I’m just wondering because this is my first time making these and I don’t know anyone who made them and I thought this recipe was good. I just want to make sure this recipe looks all right. I remember I made some chocolate chip cookies and it tasted like salt.

Oh and another question, when I make chocolate chip cookies, how do i prevent them from being salty? Has anyone else had this problem? (I did my measurements right, but they still came out salty…But my family ate them anyways)

Last question, does anyone know of any good Christmas cookie recipes? I want to bake several types for Christmas Eve.

My apologies for so many questions, thank you if you can help =p

I looked at the Pinwheel recipe and it looks all right to me. I guess I would bake them.

About the chocolate chip cookies: Does the recipe call for unsalted butter? Because when a recipe calls for unsalted butter, there is a small amount of salt it calls for in the recipe as well. When you use salted butter, don’t add the extra salt, or use only a very tiny bit of what is written.

For a good reliable recipe look up the Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip cookie recipe online. I’ve eaten it since I was a kid and I’ll never use another recipe.

About the Christmas Cookies: I’m doing the same thing this year!! :) Once finals are over that is. When I was searching online for recipes, I found that MarthaStewart.com has a TON and I mean a TON of really cookie good recipes, all for free, and with really good and thorough directions. There is a section devoted to christmas cookies on her site. I trust her recipes more than ones from allrecipes.com or cooks.com because hers are professionally tested to have made it on her site.

One recipe in particular I’m really excited to make is “Russian Tea Cookies”. I had one in a goodie bag at work last week and oh my gosh I loved it. Here is the best recipe I could find online.

Hint: When recipe searching online, its a good idea to scroll down and view the comments people make because the often do after using the recipe, and they can be very helpful if there is something to watch out for.

Russian Tea Cookies

• 1 cup salted butter, room temperature, softened
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 6 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 cup chopped pecans
• 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, cream butter and vanilla until smooth. Combine the 6 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar and flour; stir into the butter mixture until just blended. Mix in the chopped walnuts. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. When cool, roll in remaining confectioners’ sugar. I also like to roll mine in the sugar a second time.
