  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add 2/3 cup sugar and vanilla. Beat until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in the flour and salt until combined.

  • Spoon chocolate mixture over dough. Stir just until "reveled" or marbled. Drop the cookie dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets using a cookie scoop or rounded teaspoons.

  • Grease the bottom of a glass. Dip in additional sugar, then press cookies with glass to 1/4-inch thickness. Repeat dipping and pressing for each cookie.

  • Bake in a 350ºF oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and let cool.
