I have been making these insanely yummy cookies for years because they’re one of the best cookies I’ve had. I have added chocolate chips, and left them out, either way they are great. Don’t over bake these, as they cool off they will set and stay soft and delicious.
2 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (8-ounce) package of regular Heath toffee bits
1 cup milk chocolate chips (optional)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside. In a large bowl (or the bowl of an electric stand mixer), with an electric handheld mixer, beat together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla and mix until the mixture is very light in color and creamy. Add the flour mixture and stir to combine. Once it is about halfway combined, add the heath bits and chocolate chips, if you are using, and mix until all the ingredients are mixed together. Chill the cookie dough for 30 minutes to an hour.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet, scoop the cookie dough into about 1-inch balls. Place the dough about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are just starting to brown. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet.
