Chocolate Chips Toffee Cookies

Being near the shoreline of CT, our area was hit hard by Storm Sandy. Many people near the beach lost their homes and many people are still without power after 5 days. Our house was lucky enough to only loosing power for about two hours and two small trees that were down. However, we didn't get internet/cable back for about 5 days. J and I feel very lucky and blessed.

There are towns in NJ and NY that are basically destroyed. Our family do a annual trip to Jersey Shore (Seaside Park and Seaside Heights) for my father in law's birthday and we are very sad to see all the images of the devastation to the area. The boardwalk got washed away and homes were smashed.

 I've decided to make some cookies since I haven't bake in a while, almost 3 weeks!

Chocolate Chips Toffee Cookies
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of room temperature butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Hershey's Heath Toffee Bits
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a big bowl, cream together the brown sugar and granulated sugar until the color is light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and eggs, mix well. Add the flour mixture from the small bowl into the wet mixture in the big bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips and toffee bits. Place the cookie dough into the fridge and let it rest for about 30 minutes. This also makes it easier to scoop. 

While you are waiting for the dough to rest, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 

Scoop the dough with a cookie scoop (about 1 heaping tbs) and drop onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Wait about 2-4 minutes before eating so you don't burn your mouth!
