one of my favorite desserts is a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie. with nuts of course!

Ben has been battling the molars lately so anytime a nap happens I make the most of it. Today I decided to fulfill my always salivating sweet tooth.

chocolate chip pecan cookies:

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnut or pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat.

In mixing bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, sugar and shortening. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.

In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to creamed mixture.

Fold in chocolate chips and nuts.

Spoon onto baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool before enjoying!

Tonight I’ve got white chicken chili on the menu. I can taste the lime and cilantro already!

What is one of you favorites to put in chili?
