1 cup powdered sugar

Step 6: Add Chocolate Chips and Pecans
Stir the chocolate chips and pecans into the cookie dough using a large wooden spoon.
Step 7: Shape Cookie Dough
Roll a ball of dough about the size of a walnut, coat it in powdered sugar and place on cookie sheet., pressing down slightly so they don't roll around.
If you place the rolled up cookie dough on the cookie sheet as pictured, you will be able to bake 13 cookies per batch! This is known as a Bakers Dozen!

Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and place cookies on a wire cooling rack. This recipe makes 5 dozen cookies. Place cooled cookies in a sealed container. Enjoy!
