Chocolate Chip~Pecan Cookies
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup + 1T granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup King Arthur all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup rough chopped pecans (or walnuts)
In a large bowl, using a hand held mixer, cream the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and stir in the dry ingredients. Add the chips and pecans and mix thoroughly using the rubber spatula. Transfer dough to plastic wrap and flatten to a square. Chill dough for at least 1 hour or place in a freezer bag and freeze for up to 1 month.
Preheat oven to 350F-degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
I use a knife to cut the dough into squares, then roll into a ball between my hands. Place on the baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Now, your home is ready to sell--fingers crossed! Enjoy!
