Toffee cookies

When I was pregnant with the littlest one all I could think of was indulging in the gigantic toffee cookies from Atlanta Bread Company. The other day a friend and I met up in ABC for lunch and I thought of getting one of those cookies (you know, for old time sake), but I did not want to spend $1 for one cookie. So, I decided to find a recipe and make it myself... For a fraction of the price.

Toffee Cookies


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups of toffee bits or Heath Bar bits (you can find them in the baking section of your grocery stores)

  1. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  2. Beat together the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, and vanilla.
  3. Alternatively add the flour mixture and the toffee bits, a third at a time, until well blended. Chill cookie dough for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. On cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or Silpat, spoon out the cookie dough in small 1-inch diameter balls. 
  5. Place dough balls 3 inches away from each other on the cookie sheets. 

I love ABC, don't you? If you are new to town or have a layover at the Atlanta airport give them a try. The sandwiches and soup are so delicious.
