Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield: 24 cookies Prep 20 mins Bake 325°F 15 mins to 17 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter OR: margarine, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 12 ounce bag semisweet chocolate chunks OR: one 10-ounce bag oversize semisweet chips
  • 1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Make It

1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.

2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in medium-size bowl.

3. Beat together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until blended. Stir in the flour mixture until blended and dough forms. Stir in the chocolate chunks or chocolate chips and chopped pecans.

4. Using a 1/4 cup dry measure, drop dough by slightly rounded mounds onto large ungreased baking sheets, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart.

5. Bake in 325 degrees F oven 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown around edges and lightly colored on top.

6. Remove the baking sheets to a wire rack and let cookies cool on sheets for about 3 minutes. Remove the cookies with a metal spatula from the baking sheets to a wire rack and let cool completely.
