Hello Cookie Lovers– In the never ending search for the perfect chocolate chip cookie, I’ve made a significant step forward. These things are delish! We baked up a batch this afternoon in Ani’s kitchen and I’ve eaten way too many since then. I hope you do give them a try…
TOFFEE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 1/4 stick of butter (3/8 pound)
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 cup dark chocolate chocolate chips*
1 cup toffee candy bars, chopped to bits**
1 cup chopped pecans
Cream the butter, sugars, egg and vanilla together with an electric mixer. Then add in the flour, baking powder and salt. And then beat in the chocolate, toffee bits and pecans. Line up spoonfuls of the thick batter on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes until the cookies are golden brown.
* I had a big dark chocolate (85% cocoa) chocolate bar and just chopped it up in place of the chocolate chips.
** Heath or Skor candy bars will do the trick.
In the thin crispy cookie versus the thick chewy cookie debate, these are definitely on the crispy side– just perfect to my way of thinking.
