Chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal and pecans

This recipe reminds me of See's summer chocolates which are a combination of nuts and milk chocolate. (If you haven't tried them, I highly recommend them.)

Here's the recipe from Epicurious:


1 cup (2 sticks) margarine
1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (about 12 ounces)
1 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 2 heavy large baking sheets. Beat margarine and both sugars in large bowl until fluffy and well blended. Beat in eggs 1 at a time, the vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda and salt over margarine mixture and stir to blend. Mix in oats, the chocolate chips and pecans.

Bake for 12 minutes at 375.
