My husband claims that he doesn't like chocolate, and when I make cookies, they are usually my Mom's chocolate chip cookies (they are my favourites!). In the newest Whitewater book, there is a recipe for Toffee Crunch Lunch Box Cookies...complete with Skor bits, and my hubby loves Skor bits so I figured these cookies might be a hit. Plus it's a pretty easy recipe, a perfect Mother-Son baking session (which was a lot of fun!). Sure enough, these cookies were a big hit, with hubby and oldest son alike. They LOVED them! Here is the recipe:
1 teaspoom baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 lb butter, room temperature
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package (200g) Skor toffee bits
White sugar for sprinkling (though I left this step out)
Combine flour, baking powder and salt.
Beat together butter, sugars, and vanilla until light and fluffy in a large bowl.
Add eggs and blend thoroughly.
Add flour mixture in thirds, mixing well after each addition.
Stir in toffee bits.
Drop by rounded teaspoon onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle with white sugar (as mentioned, I left this step out).
Bake in a 350F oven until golden brown, for about 12 minutes.
Cool on rack when done.
Easy breezy, and a hit with the boys. I enjoyed the cookies (I AM a cookie monster), though it is hard to beat my Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies! Thanks again, Whitewater Cooks!
