Cashews, toffee chips, and mini chocolate chips come together for an easy drop cookie. Satisfies the chocolate chip cookie lover with just enough variation for those who want to try something a little bit new.
Made with or without chocolate chips, these toffee-studded drop cookies are always a favorite. The browned butter helps develop a rich and nutty flavor to an easy to make cookie. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt for an extra punch of flavor.
These are my new favorite cookie. They are chewy, just like an oatmeal cookie should be, with a maple caramel flavor from the maple extract, brown sugar, and toffee bits, which melt into the cookie as they bake.
½ cup butter, softened
1 ½ cups packed brown sugar
2 tsp maple extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups flour
1 Tbs cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
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, maple and vanilla extracts. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat in oats, walnuts, and toffee bits.
Drop by level tablespoonfuls (2-inches apart) onto baking sheets. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Cool on pans for 2-3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool.
