  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1&1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2&1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 8 ounces toffee bits plain or chocolate bits


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer blend butter until creamy, about two minutes.
    Add brown sugar. Mix on medium speed until the butter/sugar mixture is well-aerated, about three minutes.  
    Add egg, one at a time. Blend to combine.
    Add vanilla extract and mix one more time to incorporate.
    Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined, maybe 60 seconds. 
    Don't over mix, dough will be tough.
    Pour in toffee bits and stir.
    Chill for at least an hour, preferably three hours or overnight before baking. 
    Scoop dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet or half sheet pan using a cookie scoop for uniformity. Or use a Silpat if you don't have parchment. 
    Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. 
    Baking times may vary depending on your oven temperature. 
    When you start to smell fresh cookies, check the oven, they'll be done baking or nearly so.
