Peanut Butter Toffee Cookies: 12 Days of Cookies 2013

Day 1: Peanut Butter Toffee Cookies
Today is National Cookie Day so I thought it would be perfect starting point for this year's 12 Days of Cookies!  I found this recipe on Martha Stewart's website this morning.  Don't forget to check back tomorrow for another recipe.

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (spooned & leveled), plus some for finger tips
  • 1/4 teas baking soda
  • 1/8 teas salt
  • 4 Tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 chocolate-covered toffee candy bars (1.4 oz each), chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add peanut butter and egg; beat until smooth.  With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture.  Stir in toffee.

Using 1 level tablespoon batter per cookie, drop onto baking sheets, about 1 inch apart; flatten slightly with floured fingertips.  Bake until the edges are golden brown, 16-18 minutes.  Rotating the cookie sheets halfway through.  Transfer cookies immediately to a wire rack to cool completely.
