There's nothing quite like biting into a warm, freshly baked chocolate chip pecan cookie. The crispy outer layer, chewy center, and crunchy bits of pecans and white chocolate make this classic cookie an irresistible treat for any occasion.
In this blog post, I'll be sharing my go-to recipe for making these delicious cookies.
If a dog is a man's best friend, than these pecan white chocolate chip cookies are his girl's.
I really don't know what the two have to do with each other. But what I do know is these Chocolate chip pecan cookies are my best friend, particularly in the holiday months.
Who am I kidding? They're my favorite on any day.
But there are a few things that are staples in my holiday palette; pumpkin (check out these pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies if you love a good cookie), white chocolate (this peppermint white chocolate hot chocolate is a fav around here), sweet potatoes (ever had sweet potato biscuits? You should def try them), and eggnog (and whew this eggnog pound cake never disappoints).
These white chocolate pecan cookies I actually stumbled on making after making my first attempt at making regular ol' homemade chocolate chip cookies.
That's how it usually happens for me. I taste something and think “this would be great if I add x, or substitute z.”
I decided to replace milk chocolate chips with the better tasting white chocolate. Yea I said it! And add pecans. Because I love a chocolate chip cookie with the added texture of nuts. And I usually have pecans on deck.
So today, I am sharing a Kenya Rae scratch made stumbled on recipe.
And the good news is there are more cookies in this basket. I have collaborated with Natasha from Houseful of Nicholes for a cookie hop called #HousefulofCookies!

A few Tips for making this chocolate chip pecan cookie recipe
For best results, use room temperature ingredients as they will combine more easily and evenly.
Make sure not to over-mix the dough, as this can cause the cookies to become tough.
If you prefer a softer cookie, bake them for slightly less time. If you prefer a crunchier texture, leave them in the oven for a couple of minutes longer.
You can store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to a week, but they're unlikely to last that long!
Can you use unsalted butter instead?
If that is what you have on hand absolutely. I certainly have done it!
I’ve been making these for like 2 years now. This is my go-to recipe when I just want cookies that are absolutely delicious and easy to make! I’ve tried with different sugars, chocolates, nuts… They ALWAYS work for me. Pro tip: I always pop them in the fridge like 30min before baking. That way if my dough is a bit too sticky it becomes firmer without having to add too much flour (they stay fluffier!).
You’ve changed my life with this recipe, thank you!
