i love putting a new twist on an old favorite.
i made an impromptu visit to see some old students, and i had to have something in hand. i had leftover toffee chips from the caramel crunch bars, so i knew adding them to cookies would make the perfect portable baked good.
when i surprise visited k, he asked if i was still baking. i gave him a bag of these cookies, and he ate ’em up. he was the happiest kid ever.
make and share these with friends, and they’ll be wearing the biggest smile all day!
yield about 2 dozen cookies
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee bits
preheat oven to 350. in the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar together until they are fluffy. add egg and mix. sift in flour, baking soda, and salt into mixture. beat on low until everything is incorporated. fold in chocolate chips and toffee bits with spatula.
on a parchment-lined baking sheet, drop tablespoons about 2 inches apart. they will spread. bake for 8-10 minutes until edges are light brown. remove from oven and keep on baking sheet for a couple minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. delish.
