The chopped pecans and caramel bits really are the star of the show. Once you mix the butter and sugar and then add in the chocolate chips, you’re pretty much done with the majority of the recipe! Make certain that you preheat the oven so that it’s ready for the cookies and will bake them up perfectly.

My boys love this cookie recipe and they actually ask for it quite often. Since it’s simple to make and also makes a large batch of cookies, I have no problem whipping this up for them to enjoy.

Do I need to cover the cookie dough while it’s in the fridge?

I always like to cover with plastic wrap when in the fridge just to be certain that it doesn’t take on any other flavors of items that are in there.
