>Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

>We got a good 5-6 inches of snow today. So I ditched zumba and decided to fill the house with the wonderful smell of freshly baked cookies.

My mom sent me Louisiana pecans, which are so much better than the really expensive ones you can get at the grocery store. And Jon had given me 2 HUGE bars of great quality Belgian white chocolate in my stocking this year, so this recipe was perfect.

Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chopped pecans
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
8 oz milk chocolate chips
4 oz white chocolate chips (or in my case, coarsely chopped amazing Belgian white chocolate)

1. Mix together flour and baking soda. Set aside.
2. In a standing mixer with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars.
3. Add salt, vanilla, and egg while continuing to blend.
4. Blend in flour and baking soda mixture.
5. Fold in chocolates and pecans.
6. Roll into balls and place on flour dusted cookie sheets.
7. Bake at 375 degrees for 13-15 minutes.
