Mint or Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies? These are an alternate style for the Christmas Season
Just a classic simple cookie. If I don't make them everyone would complain. Sometimes simple is the best, not complicated and always a hit. We love using milk chocolate chips in these, 
you can use whatever you like around the Holiday to dress them up!

1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup white sugar
2/3 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 / 1/4 sticks of butter softened
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips or mint chips for Christmas time use whatever time of the year it is flavor
Opitonal Green or other color sugar to match the Holiday
2/3 cup whole pecan chopped coarsely omit if making mint chips
medium size melon ball scooper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper set aside.
In a large industrial mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients. Using the flat beater stir till combined. Add eggs, softened butter, vanilla. Mix until the dough comes together. Fold in the nuts and chocolate.

Drop on the cookie sheet with melon ball scooper every two inches apart. Sprinkle with colored sugar at this point if using.  Bake for  8 to 10 minutes for soft set cookies . These are not a hard cookie, even when you cook them longer they stay soft.
