Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then mix in the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Gradually beat into butter/sugar mixture. Add chocolate chips and carefully stir.
Spoon out dough one tablespoon at a time, press into a bowl shape with thumb, then add ½ tsp of cookie butter, cover with the dough and smooth out into a ball. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are just barely brown.
