Chocolate Chip and Pecan Cookies

Continuing on the cookie bandwagon, I was inspired to make cookies with pecans when 32 Degrees didn’t not have them (or my beloved oreos) for a while (and also because David really likes them).

Really, you can add anything you want to a basic cookie dough. Chocolate chips and Heath bar bits, peanut M&M’s, or even oreos (yes, oreos!).

Recipe

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed DARK brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup pecan chips
  • 1/2 package chocolate chips
