I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chocolate Chip and Toffee Cookies

  • The toffee bits melt in places and give this cookie a butterscotchy flavour.

  • 3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 and 1/3 cups flour 
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (oats that have been blended)

Cream together the butter and both sugars, then add the eggs and vanilla extract.

Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl then add it about 1/3 of the mix at a time to the creamed mixture until just blended.  Don't over mix.

Fold in:

1 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup skor toffee bits
1/4 cup almond slivers

Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Place scoops of cookie dough on the sheets and press down gently with the back of a spoon.

I used a small scoop and made about 5 dozen two-bite cookies. You can see below where the toffee melted, yum!

Bake at 350F for 12 minutes.
