Chocolate chip cookies with pecans.

The following recipe makes 16 to 18 cookies.

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 baking soda
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsps all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips*
  • 1/2 chopped pecans*

Sugars, egg, vanilla, butter, salt, cinnamon, baking soda mixed in a bowl.

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Mix well.

Gradually add in flour.

2. Gradually add in the flour. Mix well.

Cookie dough with chocolate chips and pecan.

3. Lastly, add in chocolate chips and pecans. Combine well.

Cookies right before being placed in the oven.

4. Form cookie dough into one inch balls. Place on a lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Slightly flatten the cookie dough balls.

Cookies immediately after removing from the oven.

5. Bake in a 375ºC preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Set aside to cool before serving.

The cookie mascot gives these cookies two thumbs up. 🙂

Suggestion: Do not substitute the brown sugar with an equivalent amount of some other type of sugar. The brown sugar not only makes the cookies sweet but keeps them moist, too.

*This is a basic cookie dough and hence, is very versatile. Feel free to replace the chocolate chips and pecans with other additions such as walnuts, shredded coconut, oats, toasted almonds, etc.
