Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I haven't made Chocolate Chip Cookies since my son, Evan started making them about 5 years ago! He's really good at it, and doesn't even use a recipe, so I just enjoyed the fruits of his labor! Well now he's off at college and I had a hankering for his cookies. I threw together this version. I love it and hope you do, too! xo
2 C Butter, Softened
2 C Brown Sugar, Packed
1 C Turbinado Sugar
4 Eggs
2 t Vanilla Extract
3 C Flour
1 1/2 C Oats
2 t Baking Soda
2 t Salt
2 C Chocolate Chunks or Chocolate Chips (12 ounces)
1 C Pecans, Chopped

In the bowl of a stand mixer cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, & salt. Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Add chocolate chips and nuts. Dough will be slightly sticky.

Drop by tablespoon full onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
