Butter Toffee Cookies

I was shopping the other day and felt like splurging on the peanut butter chips I used in the last recipe and these toffee bits I used in this recipe.  To find this recipe I just googled toffee bit cookies and I found this on the Land O'Lakes website.  Coincidentally, I used Land O'Lakes butter too, but just because it was on sale at the grocery store.   So I realized that the toffee bits are just chopped up heath bar, so if you don't want to buy the toffee bits, just buy a couple of heath bars and chop them up yourself, I will do that in the future.  Anyway, these cookies are amazing!  I love Heath Bars so this cookies are dreamy!!  The toffee bits stay crunchy after baking so these cookies not only have great flavor but they have great texture!!  They are a little thin, but I like them anyway!




Recipe Adapted from Land O'Lakes
Yield about 4 dozen
Ingredients:
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Butter, unsalted and room temperature
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 1/2 Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl.  Beat in the eggs and vanilla until creamy.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda and salt, mix until  combined.  Be sure to scape the bowl.
  4. Stir in toffee bits.
  5. Drop dough onto cookie sheet and bake for 10- 12 minutes, or until lightly browned.

  7. Enjoy!!
