Chocolate and Pecan Cookies Recipe
This is a simple cookie recipe with chocolate chips and pecans. You can make them crispy or chewy by reducing or increasing cooking timings. Best thing about them is you can freeze the dough for almost 3 months and bake them when you want. Like biscuits you should not worry of over mixing the dough.
You can make many different flavors with the same recipe by adding or taking out some ingredients. Like do not add pecans if you don’t like them. Add any other nuts. Add raisins or any spices of your choice.
