Chocolate chip cookies are the most baked cookie by professional and amateur bakers alike. So it is no wonder that there are as many ways to make this wonderful cookie.
Looking for unique chocolates or nuts to add to my recipe, I mixed milk chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips along with glazed pecans for a chewy, buttery, chocolaty, and nutty hold in your hand cookie.
I added a little more butter so that they are chewy and not crunchy. I am not as fond of the store-bought type of chocolate chip cookies.

I cannot tell you how easy it is to get the right amount of your ingredients using a scale. The first appliance I purchased when I started My Cookie Journey was a Kitchen Aid mixer. The second was a MyWeigh scale.
I get many questions about what light and fluffy looks like when creaming butter and sugars. Well, this is white and light brown sugar with butter, a soft light brown color. It just looks so creamy.
Combine the rest of the ingredients as directed below.
Add chips and nuts and mix for about 15 seconds. I try not to break them up with the mixer. Instead, after taking the bowl off the stand, I stir them with a spatula to ensure the chips and nuts are spread evenly throughout the cookie dough.
I use a medium cookie scoop to keep them about the same size. Leave as much room as you can between scoops; these spread quite a bit.
Enjoy these chewy and wonderful chocolate chip and pecan cookies.
