Cookie recipe #3: Something Borrowed

This recipe counts as borrowed because it is from one of Kira's co-workers. We noticed looking at the recipe that it is fairly similar to the Joy of Cooking recipe but perhaps less sweet. We shall see!

Big Chippers

1 ¼ c. flour

½ c. packed brown sugar

¼ c. granulated sugar

½ c. butter, at room temperature

1 tsp. vanilla extract

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

1 egg, at room temperature

1 12 oz. pkg. semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)

1 c. chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Into a large bowl measure flour, brown sugar, butter, granulated sugar, vanilla, baking soda, salt, and egg. With mixer at low speed beat ingredients until mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Drop mixture by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. (I like to use parchment paper to bake cookies on, makes cleanup easier and the white paper doesn’t attack the heat like a dark cookie sheet does and the cookies tend not to get too brown on the bottom) Bake 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Remove cookie to wire racks to cool. Makes 2 ½ dozen.
