Cookies are one of my all time favorite desserts.  Soft, gooey, and sometimes crunchy, they are the ultimate treat.  My favorite type of cookie is chocolate chip, of course.  That sweet smell, sugary taste, and gooey texture make any day that much better.  I wanted to put a little twist on my old favorite by adding toffee to the mix.  Here is how it went...

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter

1 tsp vanilla 

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup toffee chips (I used Heath)

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.  In a medium sized bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  In a separate bowl beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until it becomes a creamy consistency.  Add your two eggs, one at a time, and make sure to thoroughly beat after each egg is added.  Next beat in your flour mixture gradually.  Lastly, stir in your chocolate and toffee chips.

Scoop out about a tablespoon for each cookie onto an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for about ten minutes - make sure to watch them at the end as each oven can be a bit different on baking times.

Collin absolutely loves these cookies.  I made the whole batch last weekend and we have devoured the entire thing already.  I only bake enough for each night and save the rest in the fridge for the next day.  After dinner for about three days or so I make sure to set out the cookie dough to soften a bit while I make dinner and afterwards I throw them in the oven for a perfect end to the day.  Don't forget to pour a cold glass of milk!
