Simple Toffee Bit Cookie Recipe

I am kinda-sorta obsessed with these cookies. They are ridiculously simple to make, while being completely packed with buttery goodness. And gasp! there is nary a chocolate chip to be found.

The not-so-secret-ingredient is the Toffee Bits. Not the ones with chocolate on them, like Heath Bars, but the plain-jane Toffee Bits, sometimes referred to as “Bits o’ Brickle”. Also, let it be known I do NOT like the name Bits o’ Brickle. It’s one of those words or phrases that just annoy me…like the word scrumptious…or whimsical. Ugh, I hate myself for typing those out.

Anyhow, if you like delicious things, get in your kitchen ASAP and get these in the oven.

Butter Toffee Cookies ... simple, rich and buttery. Possibly the perfect cookie!

Soft Butter Cookies Are Easy to Make!

Like I said they are simple…simple to make, simple looking, simple flavors…but oh my yes, they are sneaky. So sneaky, in fact, that when you are reaching for your 4th cookie in 10 minutes you’ll feel duped. Like WHAT? How did that happen?

The answer is toffee bits. For real.

Toffee Chips!

I am a weirdo and buy these in bulk around the holidays when they seem to be everywhere… I mean like who decided DELICIOUS TOFFEE was only to be consumed in November and December?

If you are not a weirdo like me, I am sure you can find them at a store near you OR certainly online.

Butter Toffee Cookie Dough...SO delicious.

How to Make Butter Toffee Cookies:

The dough comes together in a pinch.

AND if you’re feeling crazy sprinkle your dough with some flaked sea salt. I mean RIGHT?

They will bake up all gorgeous-like. And you will swoon.

These are crack omg! I reduce the butter to 10 tbsps, 5/8 cup of butter. I dont like greasy cookies i always reduce the butter. Is there a way to not have greasy fingers? I have been trying to reduce the butter to avoid greasy fingers when eating cookies, but still end up with greasy fingers. I will be doing a few modifications: like using unsalted butter, it was a little salty, but good, the tsp of salt will stay. Also will do 3/4 of brown sugar and white sugar. The cookies spread a little too much. Ill also use… Read more »

Maybe try chilling the cookie dough for a few hours. I always chill my dough overnight and set on the counter for about 15 or so minutes until it’s scoopable. I also use unsalted butter.

Recipe is amazing even found the toffee bits on amazon. Not sure if because im baking the cookies in small oven some burned so quickly in first batch. I lowered my oven too 300 degrees and cooked the cookies for 13 minutes and they came out perfect.

Your oven is probably running hot. Get yourself an oven thermometer. I always have one hanging in my oven.

These are AWESOME! I’ve literally never left a comment on a recipe before but these are worth it. I used my homemade English toffee to make these and they came out great! I’m at altitude so I was nervous but they’re perfectly crispy outside and soft and chewy inside. I halved the recipe and ended up just using one whole egg. Amazing!

I retired from Hershey and worked at the plant that makes Heath toffee bites. I must say these cookies are like working on the health line again. The aroma and flavor of these cookies are just so good. WELL DONE!!

In one word, these cookies are PERFECTION. I can’t believe how good these are! I think I might even say these are my all time favorite cookie. They are crispy, chewy, buttery, sweet and salty. This is going to be a regular in my rotation for sure! Also, I baked half of the dough and scooped and flash froze the other half and they bake up perfectly from the freezer.

I’ve made a new recipe of cookies every week for the last 4 months and these are one of my top 3 favorites! Easy, consistent, chewy and crunchy edges. Only tricky part is finding bits o Brickle. Found mine at stater brothers.

Just want to make sure that 1 tbs of vanilla is correct. I want to double this recipe and thought that might be to much.
