Unsurpassable Chocolate Chipper

1 cup butter
1 12 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
12 teaspoon salt
1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans or 1 cup walnuts


With a mixer, cream the butter; add brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, salt and cinnamon. Blend into the butter mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Cover and chill until firm (can be refrigerated over night). Between palms of hands, roll small pieces of dough into 1-inch rounds and dredge in powdered sugar. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets--about 2 inches apart. Bake in 375 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, cool 5 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to racks. Store in airtight container.
