Preheat oven to 350F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until a thick batter is formed. If adding in chocolate chips, do so after mixing other ingredients.
Give the batter a taste-test and adjust the flavours to your preference (optional).
Scoop batter with a tablespoon and place on baking sheet. Press down the mound with a wet fork to flatten and place one pecan on top.
Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes, until the edges are golden.
Allow to cool completely on tray before using a spatula to remove. If you move the cookies too soon them may fall apart (I know this from personal experience).
Serve immediately or store in fridge or freezer for a firmer cookie.
