“The Chewy”

Adapted from Alton Brown recipe


2 sticks unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans


Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan over low heat. Stir together the 2 1/4 flour, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp baking soda and set aside.

Pour the melted butter in the mixer's work bowl. Add the ¼ cup sugar and 1 ¼ cup brown sugar. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the egg, yolk, 2 tablespoons milk and 2 Tbls vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, white chips, and pecans.

Scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheets and chill or freeze. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown, checking the cookies after 4. Rotate the baking sheet at 4 minutes for even browning. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

I like to double the recipe and keep in the freezer for easy cookies in the future.
