Onceayear Chocolate Chip Cookies

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 7
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts / Holidays

1/2  c  Butter, unsalted
1/4  c  Sugar
1  t  Vanilla extract
1  c  Flour, less 1 Tbsp
1/8  ts  Baking powder
1/2  c  Chunky chocolate pieces
    . (see NOTE)
1/4  c  Pecan halves, roasted

1. Cream butter and sugar in bowl of heavy-duty electric mixer until light and creamy. Beat in vanilla. Add flour and baking powder and beat just until mixed. Mix in chocolate pieces and pecans. Dough will be firm. 2. Shape into 6 or 7 lemon-sized balls. Arrange 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Using palm of hand flatten each cookie to 1/2- inch thickness. 3. Bake cookies at 300 degrees until faintly browned at edges, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack. Note: It's essential to use the best-quality chocolate available for these cookies. I recommend buying 1 (3-ounce) bar of semisweet chocolate and breaking it into bite-size pieces.
