Cuisine: American
Servings: 60 Cookies


  • 1 cup or 2 sticks Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup Confectioners or Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cups Mini Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup Heath toffee chips


  • In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and confectioners sugar together until completely smooth. Mix in the vanilla.
  • On low speed, add the flour and mix until combined and a dough is formed. Fold in the chocolate chips and toffee bits using a wooden spoon or spatula.
  • Divide the dough into half and shape each half into a log that is 12" long and about 1½" wide. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to firm or up to 3 days.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Slice the cookie logs into ¼"~½" slices. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12~15 minutes or until the edges are firm to touch and just lightly brown. Rotate the pans once in the middle for even baking.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet completely before removing from the pan.


  • Logs can be put in the freezer in a freezer-safe plastic bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight before slicing and baking the cookies.
  • These cookies can be made right away as drop cookies. Don't refrigerate the dough and simply shape tablespoons of dough into small balls and bake for 10~13 minutes or until firm to touch.
  • Cookies can be made fancy by dipping half of the cookie in melted chocolate. To do that melt 1 cup mini chocolate chips and 1tbsp shortening in a microwave or double boiler until smooth. Dip one end of the cookie into the chocolate and use a spatula or butter knife to scrape off the excess chocolate. Place the cookies on waxed paper and set aside until set.
