Morsels of Life - English Toffee Cookies - Soft cookies with buttery, nutty, English toffee chips.

Having recently returned from a trip halfway across the planet, I wanted something quick and easy. With all the jet lag and catching up, it had to be something you could make even half asleep. Plus, I needed to make some cookies! Since I'm pretty much always low on time (and love efficiency), I wanted something quick, easy, and most importantly, tasty. Something simple, but not too typical. In the end, Mint Chocolate Chip and these Toffee Cookies went up against each other. And, as you can guess, the deciding vote went to Toffee Cookies. I'd made Oatmeal Toffee Cookies before, but this time, I wanted simplicity - just cookies and toffee. Simple. Another plus - these drop cookies need no rolling out or anything. Simply mix the dough and drop it on a baking sheet. Once they're baked and ready, just take these golden brown and delicious cookies out. They're ready to get gobbled!

  1. Looks like a good cookie recipe!

  2. Thanks! Hope you like them. :)

  3. Love the idea of the Wet Team and the Dry Team. I've found that in most of my recipes the order of the ingredients really doesn't make much of a difference, so why not speed things up by mixing all the wets and all the drys, like your recipe suggests. Great recipe!

  4. Thanks! Hope you like it. Having separate Wet and Dry Teams also helps if you want to pre-mix each team and then just combine when you're ready to bake. :)

  5. Wet Team, Dry Team!! Love it. These look amazing... Thanks for sharing

  6. Glad you think so! Wet Team and Dry Team just makes it a bit easier and faster too. :)

  12. These sound delicious! We only went across two time zones for our last vacation and I found that hard enough to adjust to! Pinned.

    1. We enjoyed them. :) I usually find going in one direction is easier than the other, but having kids as alarm clocks helps in the more difficult direction. ;)
