chocolate chip cookies

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.

It’s time to make some delicious cookies: Southern pecan chocolate chip cookies.

They are my favorites, and my children’s favorites, too. These cookies have a “southern twist”: the addition of pecans, which is a typical ingredient in Southern baking.

Here is the recipe.


Southern pecan chocolate chip cookies

  • 1 cup (230 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (170 g) regular sugar
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) soft light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cup (300 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 10 1/2 oz. (300 g) chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 oz. (75 g) chopped pecans


Preheat the oven to 347 °F (175 °C). I always use the fan setting when I make cookies, it makes them a bit more “puffed up”.

  • Put the butter, sugar and light brown sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Add the vanilla extract and beat for another 2 minutes.
  • Put the flour, baking soda and salt into a separate bowl and mix well, then add to the mixture and beat until everything is well blended.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped pecans.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, arrange mounds of dough onto lined baking trays. Make sure you place them well spaced apart to allow for spreading during baking.
  • I like to put some extra chocolate chips on top before baking.
  • Bake on the middle shelf for 9-11 minutes.


  • Leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before eating.


Oh là là, I hope you are tempted…


These cookies are just out of this world! Just remember to use soft light brown sugar, it makes these cookies lovely and golden.


Have a great day!

Hugs from me to you.
