Bake-a-thon 2016: Day 12
Bake of the Day: Chocolate Chip Toffee Shortbread Cookies
Can’t believe we are almost at the end of this year’s Bake-a-thon with just one more bake left for Friday, time sure is racing by. Today I have a shortbread cookie recipe made with chocolate chips and Heath toffee bits. This recipe is from thekitchn. I love baking shortbread cookies because they are very easy to make and taste amazing. They are crumbly and buttery. So when I saw the recipe for this chocolate chip toffee shortbread cookies, I knew I had to try them during this holiday season. They are perfect for giving out as edible gifts. These cookies are loaded with mini chocolate chips and Heath toffee bits. Ever since I made these no-bake chocolate cheesecakes, I got addicted to Heath toffee bits and I keep a bag of them in the pantry at all times. Toffee bits add great crunch to any dessert and they are perfect in this recipe too. I thought the kids would love them but I was surprised that even my husband said the chewy and caramely toffee bits were his favorite in these cookies. These cookies are not very sweet, there’s only ½ cup of powdered sugar in the whole batch and even with the chocolate chips and toffee bits, they are not overly sweet. Original recipe had a corner of the cookie dunked in melted chocolate. It looked fancy but I got too lazy to do that extra step.
