The Best Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

As the holidays draw near, I just had to share this recipe for the best loaded chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted! A friend shared these with us as part of a meal she made during Ernie's recovery. The recipe came from Deede Hinson, Innkeeper at the Baird House Bed and Breakfast in Valle Crucis, NC, and they are delicious! I have made them for the sweet nurses and staff at the Duke Transplant Clinic and they rave about them every time we show up. Trust me, once you make them, you will never go back to plain old chocolate chip cookies again!


3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 12 oz bag chocolate chips
1 12 oz bag of Reese's peanut butter chips
1 1/2 to 2 cups whole pecans

Combine sugars and butter, mixing well.  Gradually add eggs.  Add vanilla.

Combine flour, soda and salt, mixing well.  Gradually add dry ingredients to sugar/butter mixture, stirring just until blended.  Stir in chips and pecans.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 3-4 dozen cookies.
