  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Baking tips

  • If the first batch goes flat on the baking pan, stir in a tablespoon, or so, of flour (for a more cake-like cookie) along with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda (for puff up) into the dough.
  • For crispy cookies with a soft center, use 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
  • To get cookies to look and taste like store bought, use half butter and half solid shortening. Then freeze dough 1 hour before baking. This solidifies the fat, which will spread less while baking. Also, portion on to baking pans with a cookie scoop, this will create consistently round cookies.
