Pecan Supremes

Another Mrs. Fields great cookie.  This is a heartier cookie with a bit of oatmeal and pecans.  I usually am not a nut fan in cookies, but this cookie is really good.  It uses dark brown sugar and you can really taste it in them.  A little change from the normal chocolate chip cookie.

adapted from Mrs Fields: Best Ever Cookie Book
yield: 3-4 dozen

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cups quick oats
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 300.  In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and oats.  With an electric mixer, combine sugars and add butter.  Beat to forma grainy paste.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat on medium until light and fluffy. 
Add the flour mixture, pecans and chocolate chips and mix on low until just combined.  Don't overmix.  Drop by rounded TBSP's onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Cook for 18-20 minutes.  Immediately transfer to cool surface.  (Cookies will not brown much because of the low oven temp.)
