Description

I love these. They’re really cookies, but look just like toffee. So easy and fun to make!

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks Butter
  • 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips (milk Or Semi-sweet)
  • ¾ cups Finely Chopped Pecans

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and flour and mix until combined. Spread on cookie sheet with an offset spatula until thin. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle on chocolate chips. Return to oven for 1 minute. Remove from oven and spread chocolate thinly over the cookie layer.

Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Cut into squares.

I didn’t think these had any flavor- especially the toffee layer. I was a little disappointed.

It wasn’t what my daughter and I expected. We wanted it to have more of a true toffee flavor. Still a great cookie tasting dessert, but not a recipe that made it into my ‘keep’ file.

I love old church cookbook recipes and this one is a great one! Easy to make and great to share. We have already made six batches of these. We have made them with milk chocolate and pecans, milk chocolate and toffee bits, and semi-sweet chocolate and crushed candy canes. My tip – after adding the chocolate and toppings and waiting a few minutes, score them. This makes them easier to get out of the pan later once they are all set. I also cut the squares into triangles to make 48 pieces – they are rich enough to make a little more to share!
