"Pizza Cookies"

My kids call these "Pizza Cookies" because of their shape. They are a favorite in our house and simple to make. I like to add nuts to my batches, but make sure you chop them fine, otherwise they make it difficult to break the cookies into their perfect wedges.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add flour and salt. Stir in chips.

Divide dough in half. Press each half into an ungreased 8-inch round cake pan. Bake 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Score cookies with sharp knife, taking care not to completely cut through. Make 8 wedges per pan.

Let pans stand on wire racks 10 minutes. Invert cookies onto wire racks; cool completely. Break into wedges.
