If I was to bribe Santa, these toffee drop cookies will be THE cookies I will be leaving him on Christmas eve. Soft, chewy and generous with Heath’s toffee bits, they are the perfect morsels for milk-dunking. Bake some now and get on everyone’s nice list.
- 3-1/2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 8 ounces butter , softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3 eggs
- 8 ounces toffee pieces
In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cream of tartar.
In a large bowl, combine butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Using a electric mixer on low speed, beat until blended. Add eggs and beat well.
Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating well until well-blended. Add toffee bits and stir to combine.
Using a small scoop or a teaspoon, drop dough onto a lightly-greased baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake in a 350 F for about 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for a few minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
