BUTTER PECAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

I created this recipe with pecans I received from a friend in South Carolina, that she had harvested from her pecan trees. She even had them shelled for me. So these cookies are very special.

I usually use Black Walnuts or English Walnuts when I make cookies, but I just could not resist the use of the pecans I received from my friend Francis of Magnolia's on Maine in Lamar S C. My husband really loved these cookies. The recipe makes about 4 dozen, and the Butter Pecan Extract helped to enhance the flavor. I prefer using Ghirardelli chocolate chips.

How to Make BUTTER PECAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Chop pecans if not already chopped, measure and set aside till needed. Spray several cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray and set aside till needed. NOTE: TO INTENSIFY THE PECAN'S NUTTY FLAVOR, TRY TOASTING THEM IN A PREHEATED 350 DEGREE F OVEN FOR 10 TO 15 MINUTES. You will be glad you did.
  2. Add the 2 eggs to a small bowl then add in the yolks only & set aside till needed.
  3. Combine white & brown sugar together with melted butter or olive oil.
  4. Beat the sugars with melted butter or oil with mixer until completely blended, then add in the egg yolks one at a time, & beat well after each addition until blended.
  5. Now add in the flour in three increments, beating well after each addition. Add in the flavoring and beat till well mixed.
  6. Now it is time to add in both the pecan and chocolate chips, mix with beater if possible, but may need to switch to a large spoon to finish blending together.
  7. Now shape dough with a small scoop or large tablespoon and drop onto a prepared cookie sheet, but space at least 2-3 inches apart.
  8. Place in preheated 325 degree F. oven and bake for 12 minutes. Then remove from oven but allow cookies to remain on baking sheet for at least 10 minutes before removing. Then remove to wire rack and allow to cool completely before adding to platter. Serve & enjoy.
