A buttery rich chocolate chip cookie! Very good, ElaineAnn. I used finely ground pecans to disguise the nuts from my one son. I had to use mini-M&M chocolate candies in place of the chocolate chips because my store did not have the mini-chocolate chips. After the first batch, I did reduce the baking time down to 12 minutes because they got a little too crisp around the edges. I actually got three dozen good-sized cookies out of this. I also think these cookies would be delicious even without the chocolate chips - kind of like a pecan sandie. Thanks for sharing, ElaineAnn.
