  • Mixer
  • Bowl
  • Spatula
  • Spoon
  • 2 Cookie Sheets


  • 1 cup Shortening
  • 1 cup packed Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 Eggs
  • cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 bag Milk Chocolate Baking Chunks
  • 1 cup chopped Pecans


  • Preheat oven 350°F/176.7°C
    First, take your bowl and mixer and add the  shortening, packed brown sugar, and sugar. Then, blend those ingredients together until they are smooth. Next, take your eggs and vanilla and add them to the mixture and blend until smooth. After that, clean off mixer attachments aka beaters and then, add flour, baking soda, and salt to mixture. Now, the reason we removed the “beaters” is, because it is much easier to mix by hand, with a spoon, than with the mixer. Plus, the out come is better. Not, sure why it makes the cookies taste better but it does. With that in mind, make sure dough is well mixed and there is no dry flour noticeable.
    Finally, add the chocolate chunks and pecans to the mixture and mix well and evenly.
    Baking time:
    First of all, your baking sheet needs greased, with cooking spray or shortening. For best results, use parchment paper. Now, take your chocolate chip cookie batter and your spoon and drop a little over 1 inch or bigger drops of batter on the cookie sheet. Continue spooning out drops and spacing them 1 inch apart, until pan is full. Lastly, place in the oven and bake 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Also, keep in mind you want to be filling the second baking sheet while the first is baking and so on. In addition, your cookies should come out fluffy, if you do not want them fluffy, press them down with a spatula.
