Ingredients
  • 8 1/2  ounces 
    all-purpose flour (1-3/4 cups)
  • 1/3  cup 
    unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    table salt
  • 6   ounces 
    unsalted butter, slightly softened (3/4 cup)
  • 1   cup 
    packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup 
    granulated sugar
  • 2   
    large eggs
  • 1   teaspoon 
    pure vanilla extract
  • 9   ounces 
    semisweet chocolate chunks (1-1/2 cups)
  • 3 1/2  ounces 
    coarsely chopped pecans (about 3/4 cup)
Directions
1.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cover your cookie sheets with parchment. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. With an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add the flour mixture and mix on medium low just until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and stir in the chocolate and pecans.
2.
Drop the dough by the heaping tablespoonful about 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheets. Bake until they're still very soft but no longer look wet, about 8 minutes. (These cookies are especially good and chewy if under baked at this short time; otherwise the cookie is overly crisp and hard when cooled.) Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
