    I have been tweaking this recipe for some time and DH says it's perfect now. So I thought I'd share my "perfect" cookie recipe. LOL

    Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

    4- ounce stick of salted butter
    7- ounces shortening
    1- pound brown sugar
    4- ounces white sugar
    1/4- cup heavy cream
    2 tablespoons vanilla
    1 whole large egg
    2 large egg yolks

    1 pound + 4 ounces bread flour
    2 teaspoons salt
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
    8 ounces finely chopped pecans

    Preheat oven to 325°

    In a large mixer bowl, on medium speed, cream butter, shortening and sugars until very light and fluffy…about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the liquids one at a time and beat well after each.

    In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients and stir well to distribute the ingredients.

    A little at a time, mix the dry ingredients into the sugar mixture. When all the dry ingredients have been incorporated, add the nuts and chocolate chips; by this time your mixer bowl may be full so you may have to stir them in by hand.

    Using an ice cream scoop make dough balls, 2 ounces each and place 6 balls on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 18 minutes.

    Cool cookies on a cooling rack by sliding the parchment paper off the cookie sheet onto the rack.

    Store in airtight container.
    Makes 40 cookies
