I was in the mood for baking yesterday. ....hmmm chocolate chip cookies would be good. These are definitely decadent and chewy, I used dark chocolate chips and Skor toffee bits.

My next PDG's stitchery block is completed and the top for my square in a square. I'll be taking a picture of these and posting next time. Enjoy the chewy toffee cookies.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 C. Golden Crisco
1 1/4 C. lightly packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 Tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C. All-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 C. choc. Chips
1 C. Shor toffee bits

Cream Crisco and brown sugar in large bowl at medium speed until light and fluffy (2min) Add egg, milk, vanilla beating until just blended. In a separate bowl mix together flour, salt and baking soda. Combine and then add choc. chips and toffee.

Drop dough by spoonfuls on ungreased baking sheet (3" apart)
Bake 375 F 8-10 mins. In my oven I baked them for 7 min.
Cookies will still appear moist when baked. Let cool 2 min, then remove to cooling rack.

Yum! I might just have to try these! We have a convenience store that sells cookies like this, and they are addicting! Hope you didn't eat too I would have. Oh, I wouldn't have had probably as many cookies, as I would have had spoonfuls of cookie dough!

These cookies look fantastic! Just what I feel like right now! We don't have Skor toffee bits or anything like that but I wish we did, sounds great.

I'm sitting here with my cup of
coffee and those cookies sure would be a nice treat to go with it.
I will have to try the recipe out this week. Haven't baked cookies like that for a long time.
Thanks so much for sharing, Wendy.
Take care and have a great weekend.

I'd love to try these but we don't have Crisco here. Maybe I could find a substitute. They certainly look yummy!

Ginger Patches said...

I'm a fan of chewy too! Whenever someone is like "how can I make my cookies crispy" I'm like (can you tell I'm from Ca. here?) "why would you want to?" AND I always add toffee chips but I haven't seen that brand before...we have the heath bar kind here. Now I'm craving cookies...dang it!

Ok these look really good!!! I've heard Crisco adds a different flavor to the cookies, I may have to try that the next time I make them....

Red Geranium Cottage said...

You need to get those cookies off that blog!!!!!!!!!!!! I keep looking at them and wanting to bake!!!

Carole said...

Got any left for me? I'm coming right over! I could use some chocolate! ;o) I'm glad to read that you're finding/taking some "me" fun time! Keep well!
