  • 2.5 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter room temp, 2 sticks
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup White Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Chopped Pecans


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.
  • In a large bowl or mixer, add butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat at medium-high speed until creamy and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
  • Add dry ingredient mixture to egg mixture, ½ cup at a time, and mix slightly between additions. Scrape the side of the bowl and mix until consistent. Do not overmix. (The point of mixing in smaller portions is to keep the flour from puffing into the air.)
  • Set aside ¼ cup of each of the chips and pecans. Fold the rest into the batter with a spatula or spoon.
  • Using a cookie scoop, drop dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle 3-4 chocolate chips and some pecan on top. Press slightly so they stick.
  • Bake 10-14 minutes or until edges are starting to brown. Allow to cool slightly before moving to a wire rack.
