Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pecans "My Chocolate Chip Cookies" from Alice Medrich's cookbook 

I recently purchased Alice Medrich's cookbook: Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-your-mouth cookies. I started with a classic...the chocolate chip cookie.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pecans
This recipe calls for melted butter and a rest period...be sure to plan ahead so your dough has time to chill out and relax in your fridge. The dough, because it uses melted butter, comes together in a snap. I mixed mine with a wooden spoon...easy peasy. I used a mix of chopped bittersweet and milk chocolate chunks.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pecans
I like to roll out all the balls of dough and keep them in the refrigerator until they are ready for their time in the oven. Or, if I'm actually thinking ahead, I'll pop some of the dough balls into the freezer (uncovered) to harden, then place in a freezer bag for another day. I always keeps plenty of Sharpie pens in the kitchen to write the name and baking temperature/time on the bag...just add a few minutes if you bake from frozen balls.

I've made a few cookies from that book and absolutely love it. Will have to give this recipe a try as I love the fact that you don't have to cream butter and sugar. They look delicious Mary.

I really like the idea of rolling then freezing them. I've frozen unbaked cookies in a log shape and they don't cook up as pretty. Great idea!
