Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

From Mrs. Fields, who has the BEST cookie recipes ever (and if you're a cookie lover her books are like your holy grail), these yummy chocolatey bits pair up with good ol' pecans.

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup quick oats
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans (try substituting cashews!)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (this is not enough chocolate for me at ALL-I get 8-10 oz of semi-sweet chocolate squares and I chop them up)

Pre heat oven to 300 F

In a bowl with an electric mixer, cream the butter and the sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Scrape down the side of the bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and oats. Add to the butter mixture and beat at slow speed until just combined. Fold in chocolate and pecans.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets about 1 1/2-2 inches apart, and bake about 20-22 minutes. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen
