I had no idea earlier today when my husband asked me if I could make him a delicious chocolate chip pecan cookie that I would be later eating probably the BEST cookie I have ever eaten in my life. I know that sounds like an extreme exaggeration, but I promise you it is NOT.
I hadn’t even searched too long before finding Savory Sweet Life’s recipe for The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe EVER! I followed Alice’s recipe to the letter! (with the exception of the sea salt. I didn’t have any on hand so I added the 1/2 tsp of table salt as recommended). I also added 1 Cup of chopped pecans to my batter.
I believe that one of the main keys to this recipe is making sure you are following the directions on how long to mix the ingredients. I creamed the butter and sugar for the full 3 minutes noted in the recipe and I also beat the eggs and vanilla for an additional 2 minutes as directed.
If you follow this recipe, you will have an absolutely delicious cookie on your hands. My husband loved them which is always a good thing and my 12 year old son loved them so much he didn’t even realize that he was eating pecans ;)
