DAY 8: Oatmeal Toffee Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies
It may be a long name for a simple to make drop cookie, but it’s hard to decide which ingredient is not-important enough to leave out.
Oatmeal Toffee Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies
½ cup butter, softened
1 ½ cups packed brown sugar
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1 ½ cups flour
1 Tbs cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
¾ cup toffee bits (½ of an 8 oz pkg of Heath Toffee Bits)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until very light and fluffy. Beat at least 3 full minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat in oats, chocolate chips, macadamia nuts, and toffee bits.
Drop by level tablespoonfuls (2-inches apart) onto baking sheets. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Cool on pans for 2-3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool.
