Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Butter Pecan Cookies. With the Recipe!

Most of us work for money so we can buy food.

The other day I wrote on Facebook - "I'm feeling the summer blues. For today we are accepting chocolate chip cookies (Or anything yummy) as payment for photo related work. Inquire within."

While everyone thought I was joking I got this reply  - "If you are serious, I will bake you milchig pecan chocolate chip cookies. I can also make you home made ice cream - though that can't be delivered until tomorrow. Please advise :)"

As a side note, this mother of 4 was my school tutor when I was 10 years old back in Montreal. (Isn't that crazy?)

The cookies we made and tasted were soooo delicious and yummy, I had to ask if I can share the secret recipe with you guys. And she said "yes!"

Have a good look at the fun pictures and try out the recipe, let me know how yummy they are if you get to try baking them!

1 (11.5 ounce) package semisweet mega morsels
1 cup chopped toasted pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350f
2. Beat butter and sugers at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.

Add to butter mixture; stir until well blended. Gently stir in morsels and pecans. Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
