  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  • In a bowl, mix together flour, cornstarch, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer), cream together butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes). With the mixer on low, add in egg and vanilla. Return mixer to medium and mix until incorporated. Scrape sides as needed.
  • With the mixer back on low, add dry ingredient mixture gradually until dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans by hand. Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat and set aside.
  • Form balls from approximately 1 tablespoon of dough. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are just barely golden. Remove from oven and let cool for a couple of minutes on baking sheet before removing and placing on wire rack to finish cool. Store in airtight container.
