Hmmm, interesting, but skeptical… the are cookies afterall, not pretzels…. Then used the slice-n-bake method. Very tasty, though! I don’t know if you had recipes stockpiled and ready to go or if you are running ragged making something new daily, but you are making us very happy. I agree with Marly on the disaster part of this. I know the darker the sugar the chewier the cookie, but I wasn’t sure if using darker or lighter would impact the end texture/taste in any other way. Your email address will not be published. thanks Deb! I have not yet tried the sliced freezer method Deb mentioned above. i am slightly obsessed with your site… ok, more than slightly. The cookies came out delicious, though! These Chocolate Toffee cookies are definitely worthy of any cookie exchange. And Deb, do you think I can use silpats instead of parchment paper? I preferred the scoop method to the cut method. The toffee pieces seemed a bit small and insubstantial, though. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl; whisk to blend. I’m holding off on making these until I get a box. And how long can I keep it in the fridge before I bake it. Will definitely make again but in my next experimental phase – will add a tablespoon or two of flour and not use Heath Bar “bits” but chop up real bars for more toffee crunch. It’s a very sticky dough. I LOVE that your recipes have that nice balance of salt in them…I’m wondering if anyone has tried just plain old sea salt? Keeping the dough between the paper saves all the messy hands and turns out a nice compact log. Using electric mixer, beat sugar and eggs in bowl until thick, about 5 minutes. I too, thank you, thank you for amazing every day posts this month. Trying to make these for a friend who’s gluten free, wondering if almond or coconut flour would be best? These are definitely next on my list of things to bake! I found your website recently and I love it. I was looking at those lovely pictures and lusting after them, I didn’t even realise you hadn’t added words inbetween! i will try these and most likely will love them. I was a bit concerned. I’m okay in believing the flour level is right, but good grief. It doesn’t really work to do the slice and bake thing, since the dough is (I think) gooier than the normal flour version, but otherwise, WOW. My friends and I love to follow you! Cupcake ipsum dolor sit amet chocolate bar halvah carrot cake donut. I rolled the dough into logs, froze them, then sliced and baked. You will also receive free newsletters and notification of America's Test Kitchen specials. I used a scoop to drop these on the cookie sheets, and the cookies barely melted/flattened out at all. I forgot I still had the dough in the freezer from a month ago and am pulling it out now to have for dessert! My only adaptations are that I leave out the nuts and always use the slice and bake method. I added 1.5 sticks of butter instead of .5 sticks Should I just add more flour, or are they ruined? Made these a few days ago. I have a very similar recipe that calls for peppermint extract (no Heath bar, obvs), and they are delish. i thought they were delicious and several family members commented so as well. ;), Deb, as if I didn’t have enough recipes from here made and to be made already! these cookies = heaven. I like the not-too-crispy texture. Stir chocolate and butter in top of double boiler set over simmering water until melted and smooth. bad? Is that too long to keep them in the fridge? Great Cookies! tootsie roll tart. ), I made my first batch on saturday evening and oh my were they great! I now like chocolate cookies. My husband is allergic. I made a half batch (only half a pound of chocolate on hand unfortunately) and made my cookies super tiny (I got 25 cookies, a number which includes an estimate of how much batter I ate hehe) which is why I’m wondering how many you got out of your half batch? Your cookbook is my gift of choice right now. The first time, I ended up with a mess. And then to do a comparison of the World Peace Cookies! I made these cookies and every single person that tried them, loved them! Maybe I beat the eggs too much? When the chocolate is dry, melt the white chocolate and pour into a ziploc bag. This one looks like it will be in! :). I didn’t bother with slice-and-bake, either — just chilled an hour or two, then dropped spoonfulls. (Of course I know it is…but still.) seriously? I will make another batch tonight but this time with half the walnuts and adding some chocolate chips :). The cookies turned out perfectly…crackled tops, a little crispy on the edges and chewy, brownie-like moist interiors. Not to mention I think I now have a new favorite cookie. This year I am entering your chocolate toffee cookie as my favorite cookie recipe. After mixing everything together I lined a 13″ x 9″ pan with waxed paper (I’m sure plastic wrap would have worked too) and put the dough in, spreading it out so it was roughly level.
