Peanut Butter Toffee Cookies

140

These sweet and salty cookies will be gobbled up in minutes.

  • Yield: Makes 24

Source: Everyday Food, May 2007

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for fingertips
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 chocolate-covered toffee candy bars (1.4 ounces each), chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter and egg; beat until smooth. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture. Stir in toffee.

  3. Using 1 level tablespoon batter per cookie, drop onto baking sheets, about 1 inch apart; flatten slightly with floured fingertips. Bake until edges are golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies immediately to a wire rack to cool completely.

    This recipe came out well. I followed other posters' advice and doubled the Heath bits. I also put them in airtight containers as soon as they were cool, so they didn't get hard as others mentioned. Decadent and delicious!

    Kind of disappointed in this recipe. The raw dough is pretty amazing. I would really suggest using a dough that produces a softer cookie and use double the candy bar quantity. This would make the cookie a true Martha Stewart cookie!

    mommcats, the postal service has flat rate boxes that would be perfect for shipping goodies. Doesn't matter how much it weighs, it's one flat rate. They now have a couple of sizes available at the flat rate.

    Mommacats, just raise your eyes about 3/4 inch up the page and you'll see that there already IS a feature on "Best Cookies for Shipping." Linked to it is a whole series of tips on how to ship, as well. Sometimes it's a good idea to search before making a request.

    I too would love to see a collection of goodies that can bne sent to military members by mail. My son is stationed in the U.S., but still loves to receive (and so do his fellow sailors) my home made goodies. I try to get them straight from the oven to the packaging to the post office, but sending overnight is costly, so I just package as well as I can and send priority mail.

    Hi KrazyKow - do you think that bar one would work ? Rolos sound good too. Must try this recipe on the weekend.
