- 1 cup Chilled Butter (sliced into petite cubes)
- 1 cup Rich Brown Sugar
- ½ cup Classic Granulated Sugar
- 2 robust Eggs
- 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 ½ cups Fine Cake Flour (all-purpose flour as a viable substitute)
- 1 ½ cups Traditional Flour
- 1 teaspoon Fine Cornstarch
- ¾ teaspoon Baking Soda
- ¾ teaspoon Crystal Salt
- 2 cups Creamy Milk Chocolate Chips
- 2 cups Freshly Chopped Pecans
Preheat your oven to a hot 400 degrees Fahrenheit. This high temperature will be essential in achieving the perfect texture for your cookies. Ready a large mixing bowl, and put your culinary skills to work by combining the chilled butter cubes, sumptuous brown sugar, and classic granulated sugar.
Devote a good 4 minutes to this task, creaming the ingredients together until they achieve a beautiful light and fluffy consistency, almost like a cloud. Be sure to pause occasionally to scrape the sides of the bowl, ensuring everything is thoroughly incorporated.
Next, introduce the robust eggs and pure vanilla extract into the mix. Let your mixer whirl for another minute, harmoniously blending these elements together.
Now, it’s time for the dry ingredients. Gently fold in the fine cake flour, traditional flour, fine cornstarch, baking soda, and crystal salt. This carefully curated blend of dry ingredients will provide structure to your cookies, ensuring they bake up just right.
For the finale, fold in the creamy milk chocolate chips and freshly chopped pecans. These key ingredients transform a simple cookie dough into something truly decadent and worthy of any bakery display.
Once your dough is prepared, scoop it into 5-ounce portions onto light colored baking sheets (a liner of parchment paper is recommended for easy cleanup and non-stick baking).
Bake in your preheated oven for a short 9-12 minutes. You’re looking for a light golden brown color around the edges – a telltale sign that your cookies are perfectly baked.
Once out of the oven, exercise some patience. Let your cookies rest for at least 10 minutes to firm up and finish their final stage of baking. This ensures a cookie that’s crispy on the outside but maintains a soft, delectable interior. Enjoy your “Pecan Chocolate Chip” delight!
