As regular readers know, I’m not big on desserts but I occasionally give in and make something for my husband. I’d been promising him cookies for about two months, so last weekend I decided to draw up this chocolate chip pecan cookies recipe. It turned out to be such a success I was worried I wouldn’t have enough cookies left to photograph in the morning! I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we did!
As I’ve repeatedly mentioned, I don’t eat many sweets. I find these cookies quite sweet, but people who eat more sugar may find them less sweet that what they’re accustomed to. I just want to give fair warning so no one with a major sweet tooth ends up disappointed!
Speaking of sweets – I’ve talked about them before, but I really love the Enjoy Life brand of chocolate chips. They have ‘normal’ sized ones, chunks, and minis, and they’re all dairy and soy free. These mini chips are the ones I used in this batch of pecan chocolate chip cookies! (As a side note, Enjoy Life also has chocolate bars, and some of their offerings are vegan. A lot of their products are on Amazon for a similar price to what I’ve found them in stores for!)
Another product I’ve talked about before is my heavy duty baking sheet; I highly recommend investing in a heavy duty baking sheet like the top-rated by Cook’s Illustrated Vollrath half sheet pan. Heavy duty pans like this one promote more even baking, which means even tastier cookies! If you’ve ever heard your cookie sheet pop in the oven or seen it warp, that’s an indication that it isn’t heavy duty and that your items probably aren’t baking as evenly as they could with a better sheet., just so ya know. As you can tell, when I find products I like I am a very loyal customer!

Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies Recipe
As with all cookies, make sure these chocolate chip pecan cookies are fully cooled before storing them in an air tight container. Like pretty much all cookies, they should freeze well if you don’t want to eat all of them quickly. Even if they haven’t been frozen, a few seconds in the microwave or a quick refresher in the oven can give cookies baked a few days ago that freshly-baked taste, so don’t be afraid to heat them up!
I really hope you enjoy these delightful cookies as much as we did!
