Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

They night I made these cookies I was craving something crispy. I know that sounds odd for a cookie considering most people want a nice, soft, chewy cookie that just melts in their mouth. Not me…at least not that night. I was trolling the internet to find a cookie that seemed to match what I was craving and somehow I couldn’t! The closest thing I found was a vegan recipe that called for a lot of ingredients that I didn’t have. So, I improvised.

The night I made them, we ate them… all… like as soon as they were coming out of the oven. They were crispy, buttery, chocolaty, nutty, and perfect with a nice big bowl of vanilla ice cream. *my mouth is watering just thinking about it*. I remember my dad even saying how delicious they were and my mom was continuously grabbing for them. Since I don’t have lights for shooting, I made them again the next day just so I could photograph them since there were none left. Same result — all gone.

I tried these with walnuts also and they were really delicious. For some reason, I like them better with pecans even though I actually like the taste of walnuts better. Weird how that happens sometimes. I also highly recommend using mini chocolate chips. Since these are fairly flat cookies, larger chocolate chips would stand up a little bit more and not really mold into the cookie with the pecans. However, if you like bigger pieces of chocolate then by all means, go right ahead.
