Toffee and Chocolate Chip Cookies


I enjoy when I am able to have one on one time with each of my girls. I enjoy my time with them together as well but I really feel a special connection when I am able to take them out individually for some alone time. I was able to do this today with my 3 year old. My 4 year old was able to go out on the lake today with her daddy so this gave me the perfect opportunity to enjoy time with Emma alone. We went to the library's story time, then played around at the park, and finally McDonald's. She was most excited about the last stop because she could get french fries. We had a great time together and I enjoyed watching her interact with other kids.

I love trying out different cookie recipes. I found this recipe and knew I had to try it. My husband is a big fan of Heath Bar's so I had him in mind when making these. I just love the combo of the Heath Bar and chocolate chips. These are really, really good. I think I stumbled upon a new favorite. These are simple to make yet will make a big impact. Serve them with milk for a perfect snack, not healthy but all things in moderation.

Toffee and Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe source Your HomeBased Mom

1 C butter, softened
1 C packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 C flour
1 C toffee or Heath Bar pieces
1 C milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  In a bowl cream butter at medium speed for about a minute.  Add in sugar, baking powder and salt.  Mix well.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Add in flour.  The dough is somewhat stiff.  Add in toffee bits and chocolate chips.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet or a sheet covered in parchment.  Dip the bottom of a drinking glass into sugar and then flatten the ball of dough to about 1/4 inch.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until edges are cooked but not yet browned.  Do not overcook.  Enjoy!

As I was taking pictures of the cookies Ellie asked if she could be in the picture too. How could I say no to this face?
