Chocolate Chip-Pecan Cookies

This one is for you Suzette, cause you couldn't believe they were from scratch.  

1-1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 c unsalted butter (1 stick), room temp
3/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 eggs
1-1/2 c chocolate chips
1-1/2 c pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  (i always do 350 haha)

In a bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt.  set aside.  In large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar and vanilla.  Using mixer on high beat until light and fluffy.  beat in the egg.  Reduce to low and add flour mixture, mix until just incorporated.  Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans until evenly distributed.

Spoon rounded tablespoons of batter onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 2 in apart.  bake until just firm to the touch and beginning to brown. (about 15 min)

P.S. I never let the butter get to room temperature, I find it just works better that way.  Oh and I use whatever chips and nuts I have on hand.  It's good with anything
