Our friends were coming to our house for dinner and they were bringing all the food! Don’t I have great friends? Anyway, I made a salad, and the kids and I decided to bake some cookies. We looked through the baking ingredients and decided that toffee chips and almond slivers along with chocolate chips would make wonderful cookies. We had fun getting our hands dirty and baking these beauties. They were soft, chewy, and rich while the toffee gave them a great crunch. These were the most fantastic cookies! There were 7 of us (four adults/three children) and only 2 cookies remained at the end of the night. They were that good.
Chocolate Chip, Toffee, and Almond Cookies:
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup of toffee pieces
- 1/2 cup of slivered almonds
How to Make Chocolate Chip, Toffee, and Almond Cookies
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and mix thoroughly.
Beat butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Gradually stir in the flour mixture then stir in the chocolate chips, toffee chips, and almond slivers.
Drop small spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Enjoy.
On a side note:
My husband and I were outside last night enjoying the warm evening when we realized it was a full moon. My husband grabbed the camera and took this shot. Pretty cool!!
