Thank you all for your enthusiastic responses to my last post and for the special request for this beloved treat. It’s recipes like these that remind us why baking is not just about eating but about creating joy and memories. So, let’s dive in and make some cookie magic together!


Imagine biting into a soft, chewy cookie studded with chunks of sweet, buttery toffee. The edges are slightly crisp, giving way to a melt-in-your-mouth middle that’s rich with caramel flavors and a hint of vanilla. This recipe is for all of you sweet tooth warriors out there who love a good twist on the classic cookie. Easy to make and even easier to devour, these Toffee Cookies are sure to become a new favorite!


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups toffee bits
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts for added crunch

How to Make

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together in a large bowl until light and fluffy. This usually takes about 3-4 minutes with an electric mixer.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Gradually add this to the creamed mixture, beating just until incorporated.
  5. Fold in the toffee bits (and nuts, if using) until evenly distributed through the batter.
  6. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto your prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned but the center is still soft.
  8. Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Helpful Tips

  • Don’t Overmix: Once you add the flour, mix just until you see no more dry flour. Overmixing can lead to tough cookies.
  • Chill the Dough: If you have time, chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. This helps control the spread and enhances the flavors.
  • Uniform Size: Use a cookie scoop to ensure all your cookies are the same size. This helps them bake evenly.


  • Gluten-Free: Substitute the all-purpose flour with your favorite gluten-free flour blend.
  • Vegan: Use plant-based butter and an egg substitute.
  • Add Chocolate: Mix in 1 cup of chocolate chips along with the toffee bits for an extra layer of decadence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I freeze the cookie dough? A: Absolutely! Shape the dough into balls and freeze on a baking sheet. Once solid, transfer to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Bake straight from the freezer, adding a minute or two to the baking time.

Q: How long will these cookies keep? A: Stored in an airtight container, the cookies will keep for up to a week at room temperature. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

Storage Instructions

Ensure your cookies are completely cooled before storing them in an airtight container. Keep them at room temperature to maintain the best texture and flavor.

There’s something undeniably comforting about the aroma of cinnamon and apples baking together, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere that feels like a cozy hug. This Heavenly Cinnamon Apple Cake is my autumn go-to, perfect for chilly evenings or sunny brunches with loved ones. It’s delightfully moist, generously spiced, and features tender chunks of apple in every bite. Join me in the kitchen, and let’s bake a cake that promises to be anything but ordinary!

  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups peeled and chopped apples
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
  2. Mix dry ingredients: In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Cream butter and sugar: In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  7. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  • For best results, use a mix of apple varieties for a balance of sweetness and tartness.
