  • Cool the cookies on the baking tray. If baking cookie dough that has been frozen, arrange the frozen cookies on the baking tray and let them thaw for 20 minutes at room temperature before baking as above.


I used mini chocolate chips and I used 1 cup minus 2 tbsp chocolate chips for the above qty. I used only 1/2 cup chopped pecans. You can substitute pecans with walnuts/almonds.
Keep a close watch on the cookies after 12 mins. If you feel that the cookies on the back are getting baked faster, you may rotate the cookie sheet after 12-14 mins. 
I weighed each cookie to ensure the same size and uniform baking,
