Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 3

Add the butter and sugar to the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Beat together for 2-3 minutes on medium-high speed (until fluffy). Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed. Mix in the vanilla and cocoa powder until incorporated well.

Step 4

Add the flour, salt, and baking powder to the bowl and mix on low speed until incorporated. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips & pecans with a spatula.

Step 5

Scoop the dough into roughly 1/4 cup balls and place onto prepared baking sheets a couple of inches apart. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.

Step 6

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until just set. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes.

Step 7

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Making cookies to freeze for the holiday. Taste tested and approved. I cut back a little on the cocoa but otherwise made as directed. Delicious and a great addition this year to my cookie trays!

My daughter made a batch for her Christmas party and these cookies are packed with great flavors of chocolate and nuts, which are two of my favs! I will make these for my Christmas goodie bags.
