cook time: 12 MINUTES

My favorite recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. I added in some caramel bits and chopped pecans for a decadent, chewy delight!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 bag (11.5oz) milk chocolate morsels
  • 1 1/4 cup caramel bits (or whole caramels, chopped)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and sugar until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla and milk and beat an additional 2 minutes.
  2. Add flour, baking powder and salt and beat another 2 minutes. Fold in chocolate morsels, caramel bits and pecans.
  3. On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, drop cookie dough using a 2 Tbsp scoop. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12-14 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool on wire rack. Store in a airtight container for up to one week.
  • To freeze cookie dough, scoop dough onto a parchment paper lined, freezer safe, cookie sheet. Freeze for about 30 minutes. Remove dough and place in a freezer bag, labeled. When ready to bake, remove desired amount of dough and bake as directed. Add several minutes for frozen dough.
  • I use a pizza stone to bake my cookies, I find they spread less and don’t brown on the bottom as fast. If you are having trouble with your cookies spreading, refrigerate the dough until chilled, this will help! ENJOY!
