  • 2 cups butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cups roughly chopped pecans
  • 3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips


  • preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  • beat the butter until creamy
  • add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy
  • add the eggs and beat until just incorporated
  • add the cake flour and beat together
  • add the all purpose flour, baking powder and salt, beat until totally incorporated
  • add the pecans and chocolate chips and pulse until mixed together, if you mixer struggles then fold together by hand
  • scoop out 3.10 - 3.15 oz of dough at a time, keep the dough balls rough
  • bake for 9 mins, the cookie edges will become golden
  • let cool at least 15 mins - I recommend closer to an hour for the center to set



the outside of the cookies will be crunchy and the inside will be more doughy - if you want them baked completely all the way through make smaller cookie balls
