Chocolate Chip and Pecan Cookies

Anita was heading over to her dad's with her sisters the other day, so I decided to make a batch of cookies for her to take along.

These didn't last long. They are very tasty and soft. I used the smaller chocolate morsels to make them look like they had more chocolate in them. You can use the bigger chips if you wish. I used pecans from my dad's pecan trees. I think that adds a lot, even if you might not be able to taste it.

This is my adaption of a recipe from Nestle.

Makes: About 24 cookies
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

Those cookies look absolutely lovely and sound tasty with all that chocolate and nuts in every bite. I have a linky party going on at my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link this up.
