Chocolate Chip Cookies (Milk Chocolate With Pecans)

“My own version of chocolate chip cookies. I like to make them small, about 1/2 the size you usually do- then they're bite size and unique. The milk chocolate along with dark brown sugar are a yummy variation on traditional chocolate chip cookies.”
