    newspapergal's Note:

    Amazingly soft, delicious cookies! When I made this, I used Ghirardelli chocolate and was just short on the called-for amount of pecans. The dough was really hard after refrigerating overnight, and I found it easier to roll it into balls by hand rather than the ice cream scoop. I adopted this recipe after its original poster, Mean Chef, departed the site. Mean posted the recipe on Feb 12, 2003.

      I've had this one in my cookbook for a while, and finally got around to making them today...WOW! I wish I'd gotten around to it sooner. Not only are these really easy to make, but they taste fabulous! My husband doesn't like the usual chocolate chip cookie, so I wanted to try these on him...if the quantity he ate is any indication, he loved 'em! Thanks for a great recipe!

      These were good but I was expecting something wonderful (my fault.) Love Mean Chefs recipes. They are crispy with a soft middle. I do not like the taste of baking powder and could taste it in these. I would make these again but would not use as much baking powder and up the soda.

      Used margarine instead of butter and baked right away instead of refrigerating...I couldn't wait! Yum! Gave them away to friends. Everybody loved them.
