  • 1-1/2 sticks unsalted butter - softened

  • 2-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  • **Note - this recipe requires you to make the dough the day before
  • Take your butter out of the fridge & let sit on the counter at least 1 hour to come to room temperature.
  • Once butter is soft - add it to your mixer bowl with sugars & vanilla. Beat until creamy
  • Add eggs one at a time - do not over beat
  • Add flour, salt & baking soda - beat until combined & creamy
  • Fold in chocolate chips & pecans
  • Cover bowl & place in refrigerator overnight to chill.
  • In the morning- preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Scoop tablespoon size scoops of dough & roll into balls & place 2 inches apart on baking sheet
  • Bake 8-12 minutes or until they are just golden around the bottoms.
  • Allow to cool on sheet 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack to continue to cool.
  • *Baking note - do not put more uncooked dough on your hot baking sheet coming out of the oven. This changes the way they bake. Keep uncooked dough on room temperature sheet until ready to bake.
