Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

I don't usually post about cookies, because, come on....we all can make cookies. But! These cookies! They were so good I actually recoded the recipe for safekeeping. I fed them to a roomful of omni friends last nite, and they were much appreciated. Here is how it went...

1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp.salt
1t cinnamon
1/2 bag dark chocolate
1/2c pecan pieces
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil (or softened margarine)
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup water
2T soymilk

Preheat the oven to 350.
Mix all of the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the dry.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the wet to them! Mix it
really well. I suggest using your hands.
Shape the cookies and place onto ungreased cookie sheets. If you’re feeling
particularly lazy, line the cookie sheets with foil!
Bake for 10-12 minutes (depending on the cookie size), and let them cook before
gently moving them over to a plate.
Serve! (If you used foil, toss it into the recycle bin!)

You could totally add whatever things you like. I also thought it might be nice to drop a half-teaspoon of the vanilla extract and use orange instead. I'm worried that it would be too many flavours at once, tho. What do you guys think?
