Recipe ~ Brown Sugar Toffee Cookies

I always love it when I have an excuse to try new recipes. Not that I ever need an excuse, but it helps to know that whatever I’m making won’t be staying in my house to tempt me. My husband wanted to bring a treat in to work for his birthday and knew I’d jump all over the chance to make cookies 🙂 I have quite a long list of recipes I want to try, so I started at the top with this one. The original recipe came from Two Peas & Their Pod. I’ve copied it below for easy reference.



2 1/4 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup Heath toffee bits
Extra dark brown sugar for rolling cookies, about 1/2 cup


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, cornstarch, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. Place butter and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Turn off the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add the egg and vanilla extract, and beat on medium speed until combined.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients. Mix until the just combined. Stir in the toffee bits.
  5. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form tablespoons size balls of cookie dough. Roll balls in brown sugar. Place on balls on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Do not over bake. Cool on the pan for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and cool completely. Store in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.
