Not kidding… these are the so good. Chewy, rich and kind of addictive. I got this recipe, the old fashioned way… I googled. And then tweaked a bit. The original recipe is from Savory Sweet Life (which btw you can get lost there forever if you are the kind of person who gets lost in cookbooks! It’s a great site. I want to try every recipe she posts, and I don’t even cook much.) But I digress. Here’s my version:
Serves approximately 4 dozen cookies
Takes about 10 minutes to mix – and 14 minutes to bake per batch!
- 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar (pack it into your measuring cup!)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 3/4 all purpose flour
- 1 tsp. coarse sea salt (has to be coarse – table salt won’t cut it!)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup toffee bits
- Pre-heat oven to 360 degrees.
- Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar until fluffy (3-4 minutes on medium high speed in your stand mixer).
- Add eggs and vanilla and beat for 2 more minutes
- Add flour, sea salt, baking soda and baking powder until batter is fully incorporated. Start on a low speed, and increase a bit once flour is incorporated. (Should be thick!)
- Add chocolate chips and toffee bits and mix until well distributed.
- Use a medium size cookie scoop (or form approximately 2 tbsp size cookies) and drop onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
- Remove from oven – but leave cookies on the cookie sheet for two minutes. Then lift the paper with the cookies off cookie sheet and allow cookies to cool on paper only for a few more minutes before enjoying!
