Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies | Make These ASAP

I LOVED these Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies so much so that I decided to blog about it immediately! {I made these yesterday, you guys.}

If you think you love the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, this one could definitely give you and it a run for its money. My only requirement is you need to eat these warm and fresh with milk. Doesn’t that just sound lovely right about now? I thought so…

Main Ingredients Needed

What makes these Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies so special? Well let me tell you:

  • Butter – for flavor and texture.
  • Sugar + Brown Sugar – both are used to sweeten but the brown sugar also helps keep the cookies soft.
  • Vanilla – for flavor (use the pure stuff for best results).
  • Egg – for structure and texture.
  • Flour – this fills out the rest of the cookies.
  • Baking Soda + Baking Powder – this gives the cookies some rise.
  • Salt – this balances out all of the sweetness.
  • Chocolate Chips – I use a combination of regular-sized chocolate chips with mini ones so every bite you take has a significant amount of chocolate in it. Never a bad thing in my book.
  • Pecans – I like the taste and slight crunch a pecan brings to soft and chewy cookies. Feel free to lightly toast these to bring out even more nuttiness.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies | Directions

For full details on how to make Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies see the recipe card down below!

Step 1: Preheat + Prep

Preheat oven. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and set aside.

Step 2: Make the Dough

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla and egg. Add in dry ingredients and stir until just incorporated.

Stir in the two kinds of chocolate chips and pecans.

Step 3: Bake and Cool

Scoop onto prepared baking sheets and bake until the edges are golden and the centers look barely undercooked.

Remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet. Transfer to a cooling rack and serve warm.

Storing Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

The best way to store Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies is in an airtight container with a slice of bread! The bread is able to regulate the moisture in the container and keeps these cookies soft for days (up to 3 days to be exact)! Or consider freezing the cookie dough to make them ahead of time.

Freezing Instructions

To store unbaked chocolate chip pecan cookie dough, simply scoop into cookies, place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, and freeze.

After 3 hours, the dough should be hard enough to transfer to an airtight container or zip-top plastic bag. This cookie dough will last 1-2 months in the freezer.

To bake, simply remove your dough balls, defrost them on the counter for 30 minutes to 1 hour and bake as listed in the recipe card below.

    You can’t go wrong doubling chocolate chips! I’m wishing I had those extra 6 cookies on my desk right about now =)

    These look perfect. I love when they are gooey in the middle. And I always try to have both sizes of chocolate chips on hand. More chocolate = better cookie.
