I love chocolate chip cookies, as they are my absolute favorite cookie anytime of the year… including the holidays. Often times I will take a trusty chocolate chip cookie recipe and change it ever so slightly by using a different kind of chocolate chip or throwing some kind of chopped nuts or another ingredient. For the recent cookie swap I hosted, I opted to throw in some caramel bits and chopped pecans into the base recipe for a new favorite version. These Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies will please those who love the buttery caramel and toasty pecan flavor along with chocolate. It kind of sounds like a turtle candy… but definitely not as decadent. If you like all those flavors, this is a cookie recipe you’ll need to try!
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda together.
Using rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture a little at a time just until combined. Take your time so you have a nice consistent batter.
