Spiced Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies


Did you know that a box of Harris Teeter butter offers a great recipe for chocolate chip cookies? It’s amazing what’s out there if you just look. Who knew that of all the chocolate chip cookie recipes, this one would provide such a soft, rich and chewy outcome. It’s also a basic recipe so you can add and experiment to your heart’s delight. I added pecans, dark chocolate ghirardelli chips, cinnamon and a dash of all spice.
