Today’s cookie is a hybridized version of the Death by Chocolate cookie, you know, the one with loads of chocolate but only a smidge of flour. I’m sure you’ve noticed that I will add nuts to nearly anything I can, and these cookies are no different. I used pecans, you could certainly substitute walnuts or almonds, or all three!Now, here’s a little tip, if you want your cookie to be nice and gooey, immediately scoop and bake after mixing. If you want your cookie to be somewhat sturdier, allow the dough to chill, then scoop and bake. The difference is such that they seem to be two different cookies. I intended to bake these last night, as I prefer the gooey version, but it was 9:30, and I was just pooped out. So, my friends, I present the sturdy version, still good, just not gooey. The gooey ones are always a big hit on the Christmas cookie tray, and the sturdy version mail fabulously.
