Loaded chocolate chip cookies

My daughter is on Fall break for 2 weeks. I had to figure out a way to keep her entertained. I asked her what she wanted to bake and she said “chocolate cookies”. We proceeded to look for a recipe, got her an apron and a chair for her to help. Also gathered all the ingredients for her. I do have to say that I’m proud that we share the same passion for baking. She’s like a mini version of myself. 😁

Just with like most recipes that I find I had to change it and make it my own. So here we go…

Ingredients:

1 1/3 cups of unsalted butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of light brown sugar (tightly packed)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of oatmeal
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
Caramel to drizzle when ready to eat

Preparation:

Pre-heat oven at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
1. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
2. Cream butter and sugars until smooth.
3. Add egg and mix well.
4. Add flour, baking soda and salt mixture and vanilla extract. Mix until incorporated. Don’t over mix.
5. Fold the chocolate chips, oatmeal and pecans.
6. Place dough about 1/2 inch apart from each other. Bake until golden brown.
7. I used an ice cream scooper to place dough in non-grease baking sheet. If you use this size of cookies. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
8. If you use 1 teaspoon as a measure of your cookies, then bake for 10-12 minutes.
9. Let cookies cool in wire rack.
10. When ready to eat you may add caramel for extra gooey factor. 😀

Enjoy, Bon Appétit, Buen Provecho!
