Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
from Our Best Bites

2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/4 cup Smart Balance margarine (or similarly high-quality margarine)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 c. Heath bits
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3. Combine brown sugar, white sugar, butter, margarine, and vanilla in a large bowl until well-blended. Add in eggs and beat well. Slowly add in flour mixture and mix until combined. Add in chocolate and white chocolate chips and then mix the toffee bits until they're just combined.
4. Drop dough onto the cookie sheets and bake 8-10 minutes until the cookies are lightly brown. Allow to cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely. The cooling rack is very important in this recipe because the toffee will make the cookies stick to the pan if you're not careful.

*I used light brown sugar and all butter because I didn't have margarine. These cookies were yummy (especially the dough)! You obviously can't go wrong with chocolate, white chocolate, and toffee!
