Perfect Roasted Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

May 16, 2022Teresa

I love a good Chocolate Chip Cookie. And I’m one of those fortune persons who can also enjoy nuts of any kind. But I tell you this, I’ve never tried roasted pecans in cookies before. They were amazing. Perfect Roasted Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies were one of the best cookies I’ve tried with that combination.

Follow Me On Instagram!

I got the original recipe from a friend when she made a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies. She used a bag of regular sized chocolate chips and added half a bag of miniature chocolate chips (and left out the pecans). When I made the recipe, I used a full bag of both regular and miniature chocolate chips and added roasted and salted pecans. Oh, the chocolaty flavor was magnificent!

The original recipe was from Gold Medal Flour. The cookies were called Perfect Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies. When I went to make them however, all I could find was roasted pecans! I decided to give the cookies a try using roasted pecans (and extra chocolate chips). They were marvelous! No kidding.

I couldn’t believe that roasted pecans would make such a difference, but they were terrific and this is one of those recipes I’m going to make over and over again.

Let me recommend a few things when you make these Perfect Roasted Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies. There is a lot of flour in the recipe. Make sure you keep stirring the dough until every crumb of flour is completely worked into the cookie dough. This may take you 3-5 minutes, but keep stirring until the dough is moistened. (See my pictures).

Second, I used a large cookie scoop to shape the cookies. My secret: I press the cookie dough into the cookie scoop so the dough adheres better and doesn’t come out in clumps or separate when placed on the cookie sheet. (I keep adding dough until the scoop is full).

Finally, this recipe suggests that you put the cookies on ungreased cookie sheets. This is one of the very few recipes I’ve seen where this actually works. Don’t grease the cookie sheets. The cookies will spread while baking and they don’t stick to the pan. (That is, unless you have really old, corroded pans!)

I know many folks won’t even try a Chocolate Chip Cookie with nuts. But using roasted pecans make these cookies drool-worthy and really something special. If you’re not allergic, don’t hesitate to make up a batch of these delightful cookies. They’re that good.
