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.
