Chocolate Chip, Toffee and Almond Cookies
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!!
Congrats on your awards! Love these cookies. It’s so wonderful how you bake with your kids. I’ll take those last two cookies, please! Love the moon shot; haven’t these past few days been just glorious outside?!
Oh! Thanks Pam! I love you this much too!
These cookies look PERFECT, just the way I like them. It’s like they almost have a sheen too them -you can tell they are chewy -which is EXACTLY what I’m after!
You do have nice friends, to bring all the food! Great cookies!
Those look and sound yummy and I love the shot of the moon! too cool!
Your cookies look SO good! Toffee is my favorite!! I have a toffee cookie I make but I never include almonds. I will have to try them!
I’ve actually found that adding 1/2 cup of bran buds to that chocolate chip recipe adds a little crunch, and strangely enough, a toffee flavor!
THose cookies sure look GREAT! I could use one right about now and it is only 9:36 in the morning! lol
Congratulations on the award! You have a GREAT blog.
And that pic is fantastic. Must have a good camera and a great photographer of a hubby! lol. I try to take shots of the full moon from our house but they just don’t turn out very good with my digital.
I love to bake cookies but we always make the same plain choc chip ones, these look like a great variation, I MUST give them a try! I also came across your chimichanga recipe, my boyfriend tried one on holiday and loved it so I’ll have to make those for him too!
