Chocolate chip toffee cookies
Have you decided what kind of cookies you’ll be leaving out for Santa? If you are still deciding, I recommend these. If you’ve already decided, I recommend changing your plans and making these instead. They’re that good. Santa might just give you everything you ask for if you leave these out for him. 😉 Thank you, Pastry Affair, for these amazing cookies. Really, I think they might be my new favorite (even though they have chocolate chips in them)!
They are quite easy to throw together and even easier to eat! The hardest part was waiting for them to bake! …and not eating all of the toffee pieces before I put them into the cookies. 🙂 She used almonds and mini chocolate chips in her cookies; I left the almonds out and used regular chocolate chips, chopped. I usually chop my chocolate chips up whenever I’m using them in cookie recipes just because it gives you a little bit of chocolate in every single bite instead of huge chunks here and there! Try it, you might just love it, too. So, you might want to consider making these for your neighbors and friends this holiday season in addition to leaving some out for Santa! Have fun and enjoy!
What you need:
8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I chopped up my chocolate chips)
3/4 cup toffee pieces
What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
In a medium mixing bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and continue mixing until well blended. Stir in the vanilla extract. Fold in the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips and toffee pieces.
Drop by the tablespoon onto a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. The longer they bake , the crunchier they will get. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes before transferring the cookies to a cooling rack. These cookies have a tendency to stick to the baking sheet if not removed promptly.
