peanut butter cup toffee chunk cookies

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 |
Some days seem to just call for a baking session. Today was one of those days. It rained, I worked from home, and peanut butter and toffee sounded heavenly. Luckily for me (and my friends!), they taste heavenly too. I adapted this recipe from one over at Cookie Madness, and it’ll definitely be going in the ‘make again’ file!

Peanut Butter Cup Toffee Chunk Cookies


INGREDIENTS


4 tablespoons butter, room temperature


1/2 cup sugar


1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (I used Jif)

1/4 teaspoon vanilla


1/4 teaspoon baking soda


1 large egg, room temperature

3/4 cups flour (I used half white and half whole wheat)

1/3 cup mini peanut butter cups
(or if you’ve got the larger variety, chopped up)

1 Heath toffee bar (I used 2 Skor bars instead, as they didn’t have Heath at the market)


DIRECTIONS


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


Cream butter and sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients (less the candy) and stir until thoroughly combined. Mix in the peanut butter cups and toffee bar.


Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake 15-18 minutes. Makes about 24.



Verdict: balm for your peanut butter and chocolate loving soul. And the toffee adds that bit of crunch and interest to make them something out of the ordinary. Perfect for rainy days or any days. YUM!

Good God, those look delicious. Unfortunately my little sister who is the baker of the family is deathly allergic to peanuts. So unless I suddenly discover within myself gifts for following recipes to a successful conclusion, I will have to do without. :(

Your cookies look amazing. I was drooling as I read this post! I love oatmeal cookies, and I wonder if it would work if I subbed half the flour with oatmeal instead of whole wheat?
