i love baking and i had tried almost all the cookie recipes but dont know what i do wrong it always melts and flattens on the baking sheet , finally i borrowed from here and there and came about my own recipe , for me it comes out perfect everytime i bake it and i hope you would try this and like it and please let me know .


  • 2 plus 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 200 gm unsalted butter (room temperature)

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 cups chocolate chips (any kind )

  • 1 cup chopped and toasted pecans


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180 degrees c . mix 2 cups flour , baking soda and salt and set aside .

  • 2.

    Cream together the butter and the two sugars untill light and fluffy ,beat in the egg and then stir in the vanilla .

  • 3.

    Mix in the dry ingredients till well blended . Stir in the chocolate chips and the pecans .

  • 4.

    Then add the 1/2 cup flour and mix it in till u can handle the dough .

  • 5.

    Roll it into a log and cut it into 2 inch discs so that you can get a uniform shape with the cookies .( u can make small ones or giant cookies , whatever you prefer).

  • 6.

    Put the discs on the baking sheet an inch apart and bake it at 180degrees c for 23 min for a softer cookie or for 25 min for a crisper one . Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few min. and then transfer to a wire rack .


you can omit the pecan if you want , but it tastes much better with the nuts , but for fussy kids like the ones i have its better to omit them.
