our favorite chocolate chip toffee cookies

To say that we love chocolate chip cookies would be an understatement. I live with a self-proclaimed Cookie Monster.  We have taken a basic chocolate chip recipe and have tweaked it to suit our taste with dark chocolate chips and buttery toffee bits.  I think you’ll agree that these cookies are quite the treat!  Our cookies are the perfect anytime cookie…and any time is a great time for a chocolate chip toffee cookie.

 

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

You’ll need:

1 cup of soften butter

1 cup of white sugar

1 cup of packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/2 cups rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups chocolate chips…we prefer dark chocolate chips

1 cup Heath bit o brickle toffee chips

 

To make:

Blend the butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla together until creamy and smooth.

Gradually add the flour, one cup at a time, until incorporated.

Continue mixing and add the salt, baking powder and baking soda.

The next few ingredients should be folded in by hand.  Fold in the rolled oats until well incorporated.

Fold in the chocolate chips and toffee.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart.  Bake 10-12 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.

This recipe makes well over 3 dozen cookies.  We usually make a dozen or two and freeze the remaining dough for later.  You can roll the extra dough into small balls and freeze between sheets of plastic wrap and store in a large plastic container.   Set frozen dough out for a 10 minutes and bake as usual.
