Servings 9


  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons white sugar
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ cup salted butter cold
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup pecans chopped
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 475°F.
  • Add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, white sugar, and brown sugar to a medium mixing bowl.
  • Cut the butter into half-inch chunks and put it into another large mixing bowl. Add the egg and vanilla and mix at medium speed until totally creamy and combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients in cup-fulls while mixing.
  • When combined, mix in the chocolate chunks, chips, and chopped pecans using a spatula or wooden spoon.
  • Take about 2 tablespoons of the dough and shape it into balls (1 tablespoon for a smaller cookie)
  • Place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and space 3 inches apart.
  • Bake the cookies for 9 to 10 minutes. If you’re making a smaller cookie, reduce the time to 6 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet.


  • Using cold butter for this recipe will ensure the dough is nice and cold before going into the oven. If you find there’s been a delay in your prep work and the dough is not cold enough, then pop the baking sheet into the refrigerator for 30 minutes before baking.
  • The trick to this recipe is the super high heat. This allows the cookie to become slightly crunchy on the outside yet still super ooey gooey on the inside.
