Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar on medium for 1 minute until fluffy. (Optionally - mix by had until fluffy.) Scrape bowl as you are mixing.
Add vanilla and egg to the butter mixture. Beat until smooth.
Stir in flour mixture from small bowl. Mix until just blended. The batter will be very stiff.
Stir in chocolate chips and optional pecans.
On ungreased cookie sheet drop dough by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes until light brown. The centers will be soft.
Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. (Don't skip this step - it gives the cookies time to set.)
Remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool. Takes about 30 minutes to cool completely.
Repeat putting dough on cookie sheets and baking until all dough is used. Let the cookie sheet cool between batches before putting dough on it. Alternately, use additional cookie sheets to prepare another batch as one is cooking.
Serve and enjoy!
