Cookies for Santa!
'Tis the season for baking all the things!
I'll chalk this up to a success! Three different cookie recipes baked. Plates of goodies packed for the neighbors. I finally mastered my husband's fave, Cherry Mash (low and slow is the key, my friends). and I also semi-figured out how to make not-rock-hard Rice Krispie Treats!
It's funny, though. I keep coming back to my tried and true twist on chocolate chip cookies as my favorite holiday (or any day, really) treat!
(I may or may not be snacking on said cookie right now... true story.)
Chocolate Chip Cookies with Tasty Good Toffee Bits
(I'm not even going to pretend. I use the recipe on the back of ANY bag of chocolate chips, and I modify from there! Since the toffee bits are already buttery and sweet, I pull back a bit on those ingredients, and everything seems to turn out okay. Also, I used the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt bits, so I did not include any salt nor additional chocolate chips. yummo!)
3/4 cup Butter or Shortening
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Packed Brown Sugar
2 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Vanilla
2/3 cup Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Tasty Good Toffee Bits (about 2, 3oz bags)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cream together butter, sugars, eggs, baking soda and vanilla.
Mix in remaining ingredients.
Drop by teaspoonfuls, 2-inches apart, onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
