Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

 

I’ve been so busy that I literally cannot tell what day of the week it is anymore lol. August has been NUTS and I have never been so ready for the month of September in my entire life (*insert sigh of relief*).

Speaking of nuts, my favorite baker @courtniofftheclock’s has given us another one of her easy baking recipes. With fall right around the corner, these chocolate chip pecan cookies are perfect for starting off your holiday baking. Now that I am somewhat back into my regular routine, I’ll be blowing the dust off my mixer so I can whip up a batch of my own.

As always, if you try this recipe out let me know how your turns out in the comments below!
