Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.

These cookies are so good. The basis form these I used form another recipe, but then kinda added ingredients to it, to get the cookies I wanted. I wanted both nuts and chocolate in one cookie and went for pecan nuts. the first attempt at these had a bit too little pecans, so I adjusted it and now they are even better. These cookies are very chunky, with the cookie dough almost more mean to keep all the ingredients together than these really be cookies. But the chunky-ness really works for these and if you like both nuts and chocolate in your cookies I would recommend these.

    Oh man! I’m salivating over your pecan chocolate chunk cookies. I love nuts in cookies, but I share a household with someone who doesn’t so I do half and half when I bake. 🙂

      I usually don’t really eat a lot of cookies with nuts, but these were great. That does sound like a good solution to do half and half when you bake. I have a few recipes where I do that as well.

      You can probably substitute the pecans for almonds. I used to not really like nuts, but nowadays I’ve found a few types I really like like pecans and cashes nuts.
