  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups cake flour, not self rising
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups toffee chips
  • 2 1/2 cups coarsely chopped peanuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment; set aside. In a bowl, whisk both flours, baking soda, and salt.

  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine butter and sugars. Beat on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until combined. Add flour mixture; beat on low speed until just combined. Using a wooden spoon, stir in toffee and peanuts. Form dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. (Dough can be frozen at this point, wrapped well in plastic, up to 1 month. Thaw before baking.)

  3. Place dough on prepared baking sheets 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly with your palm. Bake until golden and just set, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool 5 minutes before placing cookies on rack to cool completely.
