Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Cookies
Serves: 2 dozen cookies
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1½ cups toffee bits (such as Heath or Skor)
  • Course sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a stand or hand mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating until combined.
  3. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt until combined. (You can mix the dry ingredients in a bowl first, but I just add them directly to the mixing bowl to save dishes.)
  4. Add the toffee bits and mix until just combined.
  5. Scoop heaping tablespoons onto a nonstick or parchment-lined baking sheet, about an inch and a half apart. Sprinkle each one with a bit of sea salt.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes until bottom edges are JUST barely golden. They may look slightly underdone, but don't overbake!
  7. Remove from oven and let cool on the pan a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
