Perfect Pecan Choc Chip Cookies

Pecan nuts and chocolate are a classic combination. In our house the kids hate nuts so I make half a batch with and half without.

I realised that I have been focusing on cakes on the blog - when in reality about 50% of my baking is cookies. A strange oversight you might think. But the reality is, photographing cookies is tricky... and they tend not to last long enough (in our house) anyway!

But that stops here - I am famous for my cookies - so here's MY recipe (with a picture that someone else took!!)

Makes 18 - they tend to be best the first day, they will keep a few days in a biscuit tin but will be a little soft.

Preheat oven to 170C

1/2 cup soft brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup plain flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2- 1 cup choc chunks (dark or milk, your choice)
1/2 cup chopped pecan nuts

Beat the sugars and butter together with an electric whisk. Add flour, egg and vanilla, sift in baking soda. Mix to combine. Add in nuts and chocolate, stir briefly with a spatula or wooden spoon so as not to break them up.

Spoon onto baking sheets - not too close together. Bake at 170 C for 15 mins or so, until golden.
