A delicious, chocolatey twist on the traditional Russian tea cake recipe. My daughter always loves to help bake (and eat) these.

  • Shape dough into a large ball and refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet.

  • Make an indentation with thumb in the middle of each ball, forming a 'nest'.

  • Fill each nest with about 1 teaspoon chocolate chips.

  • Bake nests in the preheated oven until edges are crisp (cookies will not brown), 10 to 12 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack, about 15 minutes.
