Tips

Recipe makes a lot. Easily cut in half in necessary.


Directions

Get out a large mixing bowl and put the softened butter and applesuace in it. Measure in the sugars and cream together until it is soft, smooth and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat until it emusifies into a smoothe satiny batter. Add the vanilla and salt; mix well. Now sprinkle in the baking soda, and dump in the flour. Use a big spoon to stir it all up to a nice smooth dough. Add the chocolate chips and pecans and stir again.

Drop the cookie dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake them at 350 for 10 minutes. They will be a light golden brown and smell terrific! Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack or kitchen towel and bake another batch.
