1 cup toasted pecans, optional

4. Slowly beat in the flour mixture, until thoroughly combined.
5. Stir in the chocolate chips and/or nuts.
6. Drop on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes, until golden brown.
*I actually realized I did mine wrong (or maybe I should say different). I baked them for 18-20 minutes on 350 F. A happy accident indeed! I highly recommend doing this, as it gave the cookies the perfect level of crunch.
