Chocolate chip oatmeal pecan cookies

I love these cookies.. they are soo good... my friend Chris since I have known since elementary school loves them so much, when she comes over she asks me to make these for her, and I do... then we have to have some tea, visit and eat cookies :)  which is always a good thing :)

You can leave out the chocolate chips, and add a touch of cinnamon and raisins and they are equally as good, although us girls LOVE usually I don't do that, but I have and it is still good.  You can use what ever kinda chocolate chips you like, I usually use semi-sweet, but you can use dark, or milk chocolate use what you like.  I also use pecans, but again use what you like and have on hand...

I use a 1/4 sheet pan for baking. And I can put 6 cookies per baking sheet.  I used a 1/3 measuring cup to measure these cookies, then I take a wet hand and flatten them down and they make around 9-10 big cookies...  Make these for your family today...enjoy

Chocolate chip oatmeal pecan cookies

1 stick butter/margarine softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 t baking soda
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups oats (I use old fashioned)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350, and spray a baking sheet or line with a silpat.
In large bowl with a wooden spoon, cream (mix) the butter.  Add both sugars, vanilla and egg and with spoon work together until smooth and creamy.  Add flour, soda & salt and just start combining, add chocolate chips, & pecans mixing until just comes together (don't over mix). With 1/3 measuring cup, scoop out mixture flattening dough out so you have an even 1/3 cup,  remove dough to the baking sheet (I just wiggled the scoop a little and the dough came right out) continue placing 6 cookies on your baking sheet. Wet the palm of your hand a little shaking off any excess water, and flatten cookies down.  Place in oven and bake for around 17 -18 minutes or until bottoms are lightly golden and the cookies are done.  Do not overbake.  Let cool for a minute then remove to a baking rack or onto waxed paper.  Enjoy
