Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies


I've been on a bit of a cookie-spree lately and have pinned at least 15 cookies I want to try out this holiday season.  15 seems like a lot so realistically I’ll probably pick 5 of them to test out.  Last week I made these chocolate chip/pecan cookies that were really easy to make and turned out REALLY good.  I usually always give my baked goods to other people to eat but I actually ate majority of these cookies myself, piggish yes I know, but their really addictive.

These cookies go great with milk…as most choco-chip cookies do but the best thing about these ones are that they are light and fluffy!! I'm not really a fan of hard cookies so I was excited that these turned out just perfectly.  Perfect cookies to leave under the tree for Santa ;)


Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

Ingredients
  • 2¼ cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup of butter
  • 1 tsp salt (if using unsalted butter)
  • 1 cup of packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1½ tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans

  • Directions
  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla, mixing thoroughly. Beat in the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Fold in the one cup of chocolate chips and pecans by hand, and prepare to put them on       some parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoonful onto the baking sheets.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown and slightly underdone. Cool on the            sheets completely.  



  • HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

    2. Pecans sound like just the thing to raise a standard chocolate chip cookie to a deluxe one :)
