Chocolate and pecan cookies

I have a thing for chocolate chips cookies – to eat and to make, because it’s just so easy, and takes no time. Within half a hour you can have freshly homemade cookies – what not to like. As a bit of a twist, I have added pecan nuts to this recipe – I like nuts in my cookies – my children don’t. They just want them plain with chocolate, preferable milk chocolate.
