Toll House Butter Chocolate Pecan cookies

Okay... the whole chocolate or pecan thing is optional... pick which ones you want. or try heath drops!

*BEAT together in a mixer until creamy:
1c butter
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 t vanilla extract

*BEAT in 2 eggs

2c flour
(optional" 1/4 c oatmeal)
1 t baking soda
1 t salt

Many baking recipes have 'wet' and 'dry' parts that are added together right at the end. Like this one...

*AFTER beating eggs into the wet mixture, gradually add the dry mixture

*ADD whatever nuts (1 cup), chocolate chips (a whole 12 oz package of nestle toll house semi-sweet chocolate chips) or whatever you like, and blend in.

*PLACE tablespoon sized chunks of batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet far enough apart so that they have room to spread as they cook and not touch

*BAKE at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes on the 2nd rack, or until they start to brown

Makes about 30 palm sized cookies!
