Soft and Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

Raise your hand if you love soft and chewy cookies 🙋🏾‍♀️ I’ll take a soft and chewy cookie over a crunchy one any day. These double chocolate pecan cookies have the perfect texture that you look for in a fresh, homemade cookie. The mix of dark and white chocolate chips makes them a little more interesting than milk chocolate chips alone, while the pecans give them a nice texture.

These cookies are delicious and easy to make. My favorite part is that the recipe calls for melted butter, so they can be made on a whim. No need to remember to take your butter out ahead of time and wait for it to soften. Just pop it in the microwave, let it cool off a bit, and you’re on your way to fresh baked goodness!

Whip butter and sugars until light and fluffy

I prefer to use my stand mixer to make these cookies, but a hand mixer would work just as well. Honestly, I just love being able to walk away from the mixer as it runs. It feels like the mixer is truly doing all of the work. To make the cookies, just mix your butter and sugars in the mixer until light and fluffy. Then, add in the vanilla, egg and extra yolk. Mix your dry ingredients in a separate bowl before adding them into the mixer with the rest of the ingredients. Finally, add in your chocolate chips and pecans and bake!

These amazing cookies are sure to impress. I’ve made them often, taken them to work, parties, friend’s houses, and more. They’re always a hit!
