Pecan-Chocolate Chip Cookies

No bake sale would be complete without classic chocolate chip cookies. This crisp, nutty version contains chopped pecans, but you can omit them if you want. Tip: Be sure to store soft cookies and crisp cookies in separate containers, as the moisture from the soft cookies makes crisp ones lose their crunch.
