We give these cookies to the neighbors every year around Christmas time.

Cream together 1 cup softened butter and 1 cup of white granulated sugar.
Add 1 cup Brown sugar and combine until light and fluffy.
Add 2 eggs and beat with a wooden spoon.
Beat in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Mix together: 2.5 cups of AP flour, 0.5 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda.
Stir the flour mixture into the butter and egg mixture.
Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup of chopped pecan meats.
Spoon the cookie batter onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Remove from pans and move to racks to cool.
