chocolate pecan cookies

it's just about that time to start your holiday baking!
and these are a chocolate lovers dream...
these turned out wonderful just a little too much chocolate for me...i do not like chocolate to begin with but i still taste to see if they turn out.
mike was a fan and of course my little cookie monster loves them too.

my variation would be to use half of the chips that the recipe called for.

2 ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup of butter softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 ¾ cup chocolate chunk pieces
1 ½ cups chopped pecans or whatever you prefer


1. pre-heat oven to 375F. combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

2. beat butter, sugars, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until creamy. add eggs one at a time mixing them after each addition.

3. gradually add flour mixture until mixed completely. then fold in chocolate pieces then nuts.

4. drop by tablespoon full onto an un-greased cookie sheet and bake 9 to 11 minutes.
