Beat until light and fluffy:
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1¼ c. brown sugar, packed
- ½ c. granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp. vanilla
Mix in gently until just uniform:
- 2 c. flour
- 2 c. chocolate chips
- 1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
Scoop evenly onto cookie sheet (greased or a Silpat helpful as they can stick). Bake in 350° oven until golden brown and just barely set in middle. Cool several minutes before removing from pan.
Use the Kerry Gold, 'nuff said.
