Chocolate Chunk Pecan Cookies

I'm pretty sure I have lost my blogging mojo. I just can't find ANY words to write. Not that I've been much of a writer, but finding anything to say is becoming impossible.

Yes, I am still cooking. Yes, I am still baking. I am even still photographing food. The problem comes with sitting down and figuring out what to say about the food. I guess 3 years of blogging has left me speechless! hahaha

I'm not stopping blogging so no worries! Just when I do post it will probably say something along the lines of "YUM" or "Really Good". :)

Like these cookies... they were delicious and yummy and really good! :)

Chocolate Chunk Pecan Cookies
Recipe from Bake or Break

■1 cup unsalted butter
■3/4 cup brown sugar
■3/4 cup granulated sugar
■1 teaspoon salt
■2 teaspoons vanilla extract
■2 large eggs
■2 & 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
■1/2 teaspoon baking soda
■1/2 teaspoon baking powder
■2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
■2 cups coarsely chopped pecans, toasted

Place butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave until melted, about 1 minute.

Add both sugars to melted butter and stir until combined. Add salt, vanilla, and eggs, stirring until smooth. Stir in flour, baking soda, and baking powder until just combined and a soft dough forms. Fold in chocolate and pecans.

Scoop dough in desired cookie size onto lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies. Leave room between cookies for some spreading.

Preheat oven to 350°. Bake cookies until golden around the edges but a little soft in the center. Baking time will vary depending on the size of the cookies. Smaller cookies (2-inch diameter) bake for 13-15 minutes. Larger cookies may require up to 18 minutes.

Cool on baking sheets on wire racks for a few minutes. Then, transfer from baking sheets to wire racks to cool completely.
