  • 1 box semi-sweet baker’s chocolate
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 pkg white chocolate chips


  1. Melt semi-sweet chocolate in medium-sized bowl in microwave
  2. Stir until smooth
  3. Stir in sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs
  4. Add flour and baking powder
  5. Add nuts and white chocolate chips
  6. Drop batter by spoonfuls onto non-greased cookie sheet
  7. Bake at 350o F (176o C) for about 12 minutes
  8. Let cool, then remove with spatula onto wire racks

These are a soft cookie – almost brownie-like in texture.

They are delectable with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in between two cookies to form an ice cream sandwich. They can be made ahead and frozen.
