chocolate cookies with pecans


1 cup Cold Butter (cut into small cubes)
1 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Sugar
2 large Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 1/2 cups Cake Flour (may substitute all-purpose flour)
1 1/2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 teaspoon Salt
2 cups Milk Chocolate Chips
2 cups Pecans (chopped)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 4 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl.

Add eggs and vanilla and mix for 1 minute longer.

Fold in cake flour, all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Fold in milk chocolate chips and pecans.

Place 5-ounce balls on light colored baking sheets (I line mine with parchment paper sheets). Bake for 9-12 minutes or until light golden brown on the outside. Remove from the oven and let sit for at least 10 minutes to allow the cookies to set up.
