Chocolate Chip Cookies

I usually add walnuts to all my cookies but this recipe called for pecans, which made for a nice change.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Web

1/2            cup vegan butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/2            cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3            cup granulated sugar
1/2            teaspoon vanilla
1               cup all-purpose flour
3/4            teaspoon baking soda
1/4            teaspoon salt
1               cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
1/2            cup chopped pecans

In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat vegan butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well blended.  Beat in 3 tablespoons water and the vanilla until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.

In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt.  Stir or beat into vegan butter mixture until well incorporated.  Stir in chocolate chips and pecans, if using.

Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions, 2 inches apart, onto prepped baking sheet.

Bake in a 300 degree oven until edges of cookies are browned, but an area about 1” wide in the center is still pale, about 14 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking.

With a wide spatula, transfer cookies to racks to cool.
