Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies from Ghirardelli


10 ounce (2½ 4-ounce bars) Ghirardelli Bittersweet Baking Bars, broken into pieces
½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
2¼ cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon espresso powder (optional)
11.5 ounce bag Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips
1 cup pecans (or walnuts), coarsely chopped

Yield: 4 Dozen Cookies


Melt bittersweet chocolate in top of double boiler over hot water.

Beat butter and sugars together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Turn mixer down to lowest speed, add eggs and vanilla.

In separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and espresso powder. Add ½ flour mixture to creamed butter, stirring after each addition. Add ½ melted chocolate. Stir until ingredients are well blended. Add remaining flour, stirring completely; add remaining chocolate. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.

Cover and refrigerate dough for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Drop 2 tablespoonful of dough per cookie onto non-stick cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes at 350°F. (Adjust baking time accordingly for smaller cookies.) Remove cookies to wire rack.

Store in airtight container at room temperature or in freezer for longer storage.
