Texas Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

March 15, 2014Teresa

Texas Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies are amazing. Lovely chocolate cookies are filled with chocolate chips and pecans. They’re soft and chewy with a tiny bit of crunch from the pecans. Yum.

Chocolate lovers will certainly have every sweet tooth satisfied after a bite of these luscious cookies. They’re not overly difficult either. I highly recommend them any time of the year for chocolate snacks. But they are exceptionally nice for Christmas cookie baking, tailgating parties, potlucks, and special occasions.

My husband recently took a tray of these sensational cookies in for a meeting at his office. All the guys in that meeting loved them. I’ve already had them–and their wives–asking for the recipe. So I figured I’d better get these yummy cookies posted, pronto! I recently was looking through my recipe books trying to find some tasty goodies to make for John’s meeting. I came across a recipe I had clipped off the back of an H-E-B chocolate chip package some time ago.

Those who follow my blog know how much I enjoy trying recipes from the back of boxes. And, almost without fail, they always turn out great. I gave the recipe a try and Texas Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies were a wonderful result. I loved the chocolaty flavor and I think you will too.

If you’re looking for a fantastic chocolate cookie loaded with chocolate chips and pecans, you’ll love this one. So will your family and all the folks you give a sample to!

    I’ve never had pecans in chocolate chip cookies…actually I’ve never had nuts in my chocolate chip cookies. What a great idea!!! Love these cookies and can’t wait to try 🙂

      They really are great in chocolate chip cookies. I have several chocolate chip recipes that have nuts. These are especially good. Thanks so much for stopping by!
