White Chocolate Pecan Cookies

One night, as I was putting the kids to bed, a cookie craving hit.  And I mean, hit in a big time way.  I quickly got the kiddos tucked in, and set to whipping up a batch of cookie dough.  I needed a cookie fast, so I searched for a few minutes and came up with this one.  OMGoodness....delish!  They were done just in time to settle in with a hot mug of creamy chai and Grey's Anatomy.  Mmmmm....

White Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies
Adapted from Annie's Eats

1 cup butter, softened
1 ½ cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375°.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the white chocolate chips and pecans.

Drop cookies by heaping teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2” apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. When cool, store in an airtight container (if they last that long!).

Today is the last day of Project Love Day!
