Eat Drink & Be Mary: Soft Toffee Cookies


Soft Toffee Cookies

I'm not much of a cookie girl.  Shocker right.  But I love to bake.  When I found these soft cookie recipe I'm pretty sure my heart skipped a beat and I almost peed a little with joy.  So of course I had to make them for my family, and believe me you will want to make them for yours too.  

I made these toffee cookies, and within 2 hours they were all gone.   Unbelieveable, I made another batch two days later with a little twist to make them even better.  Boom!  All gone within that day as well.  This recipe is a winner ladies and gentlemen (but really just ladies because what dude is checkin' in to see what my baking-self it is rambling about in this corner of the web).

These cookies were whipped up within 10 minutes, cooked in about 10 more, and disappeared almost as quickly.  Three cheers for pinterest for another successful recipe.

Soft Toffee Cookie Recipe
yields approx. 16 cookies

what you'll need: 
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 C brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 C + 1tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 salt
1/3 C toffee chips
1/3 C butterscotch chips

**optional: switch out butterscotch chips for peanut butter or chocolate chips, imagine the endless possibilities you can add to these soft, gooey yummy cookies.

**I would suggest doubling the batch considering how fast our cookies disappeared.  Plus the original recipe only makes about 16 cookies, and you know you'll want more of this yummy goodness.

what to do:

+ mix together the softened butter and brown sugar until creamy.
+ add the vanilla and egg, mix well.
+ add in flour, baking powder and salt and combine.  
+ fold in toffee & butterscotch chips.   
+ chill batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour or the freezer for 30 minutes. 
+ using a spring mold (or spoon) scoop out batter into balls (approx. 1 tbsp) set onto a cookie sheet.
+ bake at 350 for 12 minutes.  centers will be soft, but they will be baked through.
+ enjoy these delicious cookies that stay soft.  yum-o!

Seriously, I am so delighted to find another Pinterest success.  What is your favorite cookie recipe?  Are you a toffee lover?  What is your favorite pinterest success story?
