Directions to make Chocolate chunk cookies recipe

Heat oven to 180°C.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

Beat together the butter, peanut butter, caster sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until blended.

Stir in flour mixture until well blended and a dough forms. Stir in the chocolate chunks and chopped pecans.

Using a 1/4 cup measure, drop slightly rounded mounds of dough onto large un-greased baking sheet, spacing the cookies about 5cm apart. Bake for approx. 13 minutes, until golden brown around the edges and lightly colored on top.

Remove from oven to cool for about 3 minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.
