READY IN: 33mins
SERVES: 24-26




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spray cookie sheets with baking spray.
  • toast pecans in oven or in saucepan over medium heat.
  • cream shortening, butter, and sugars.
  • add eggs and vanilla.
  • combine dry ingredients (3-1/2 cups flour, salt, and baking soda). Add them to the creamed mixture and stir well.
  • Stir in toasted pecans and chocolate chips.
  • Dip a 1/4 cup baking scoop into a bowl of extra flour, tap excess flour off the scoop (this will prevent dough from sticking to the scoop, redip in flour as needed).
  • drop cookie dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto greased cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart.
  • bake 13-15 minutes (13 for chewier cookie, 15 for crisper cookie).
  • cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.
