Pecan Double-Chip Cookies

I created this recipe one day when I decided to revise a family favorite. My kids loved the variation, and I've been making these cookies this way ever since.

    These cookies are fantastic! I made them smaller and got 5 dozen but didn't adjust it any other way. My son LOVED them! I will definitely make these again!

    I prepared this recipe fir the first time today, 12/15/13! I used my new Taste of Home Christmas recipe book & I made some adjustments to this recipe: I used 3/4 cup each packed brown sugar and white sugar and I used 1 tsp. salt. I greased baking sheets as it's easier for me to remove the cookies from greased baking sheets and I baked 10 minutes! I dropped by teaspoonfuls on purpose to stretch the dough & I used a combination of Nestle's chocolate/peanut-butter chips from the store! I omitted the pecans-I usually do not add any nuts to my cookies in the event there are people who either do not like nuts or are allergic to nuts! I did used the specified amount of toffee bits (Heath Bar) & flaked coconut and white baking chips. I sampled one of the cookies and they are delicious! I found that this recipe made 5 dozen cookies! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I'll turn to this recipe when I want to prepare Chips Galore Cookies! delowenstein

    Cookies puffed up nicely. I used up some things in my pantry, mini chips, milk choc chips and coconut. Delicious.

    I didn't add the nuts but only because my grandson was visiting and he didn't want nuts in the cookies. Next time I would definitely add them as well. Excellent cookie.

    This is an excellent recipe. I didn't make them as large as the original recipe called for. I wanted a smaller cookie so I dropped them by rounded teaspoons on the cookie sheet and baked them for 10 minutes. I also dodn
