Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I think this recipe may just be my new go to chocolate chip cookie recipe. I’ve made lots of them over the years and have never had a favorite recipe until now.

My mom was always on a quest to make chocolate chip cookies that were like the ones from the Hudson’s bakery in downtown Detroit. If I’d of made these cookies larger I think they would of been pretty close to what I remember. For these cookies I prefer Ghirardelli chocolate chips. I like the way it melts in these cookies.

I love using cornstarch in my cookie dough. It helps form a more tender cookie and I am slowly adapting most of my cookie recipes to include it. Cornstarch breaks down the harsh proteins that are in flour. Refrigerating the dough also gives the cookies more flavor I think. It will also change the consistency of the cookies the longer the cookie dough is refrigerated. 2 hours worked well for me with this recipe. I often test a recipe resting time with a new recipe and bake a few cookies several hours apart to see at what point I like them best.
