I know these are supposed to be a gift mix...well, they 'kind of were'...I was making them for DH to take with him out of town... :-) I skipped the packing in a jar stuff and followed the procedures I normally use for chocolate chip cookies...creaming together the butter and brown/white sugars, then adding eggs one at a time (I was doubling) and beating 'til fluffy. These turned out absolutely delightful! I only baked them 10 minutes and they were a nice soft chewy cookie. The best part is DH loved them and wants me to make more of them and I don't have to feel guilty about sending him off with a bunch of 'junk food'. These are just packed with lots of goodies and nutrition! Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe Di!!!

These came out pretty good but I thought there was too much choc chips and pecans...near end of making cookies I had problems making balls...not enough dough left. I did the recommendation and used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. I would also recommend decreasing choc chips to 1/2/-3/4 cup and pecans to 1/2 cup.

I just made a batch of these delightful cookies and they turned out great ! I didn't have any nuts so I used raisons...added a bit to the sweetness but that's ok with me ! Next time I will use the nuts. I wanted to try these out before I made up a gift mix....and was pleased with the results so I'll be giving these at Christmas to a few friends...but with nuts !
