These Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect cookie for celebrating simply surviving the day. I was really distracted when I made these cookies so I may or may not have left out a 1/4 cup of flour and I dropped about a 1/3 of them when I was trying to move them from one counter to another. My cookies turned out flat, crispy, chewy, and full of Toffee flavor. I really do love chocolate chip cookies in all its incarnations.
Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
Source: A Pastry Affair
Yields about 2 dozen cookies
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
1/4 cup sliced or chopped almonds
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used miniature chocolate chips)
3/4 cup toffee pieces
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 almonds, 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 you bake them, 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.
