Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

I made this awhile ago, but thought I’d share it. It’s just a simple Chocolate Chip cookie recipe with a bit of pecans added in for a nice nutty flavor. I really love pecans, just plain or with any of my baked goods! So here’s the super simple recipe. I made it back in April when I came back home for Pacific Day. I was DYING from not baking for like 4 months, so I just grabbed some of the ingredients from the pantry and started baking…at like 10pm. Great midnight snack! Recipe was adapted from Picky Palate. She’s great, go check her site out!

Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

2 sticks (1 cup) softened unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and place your silicon mats or spray your cookie sheets.
2. Place softened butter in bowl of stand or electric mixer. 
3. Add sugars and beat for 2 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla beating until well combined. Slowly add dry ingredients, chocolate chips, beating until just combined. With a medium cookie scoop, add a heaping scoop of dough onto the sheet. Press down onto the pan so that it won’t be a big mountain of dough.  Bake for 15-18 minutes, until edges become golden brown. Remove and let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing. Remove from pans and serve with a glass of milk!
Makes 2 dozen cookies
