Chocolate Pecan Toffee Cookies

I made these a few days ago after I had some left over cookie dough from my cheesecake bars. I wanted to try something different from the same old chocolate chip cookie. Now, don't get me wrong, I do love a soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie, but this time I was just in the mood for  change. I had some pecans and toffee on hand, so this turned out to be the perfect recipe!

Chocolate Pecan Toffee Cookies
Recipe adapted from Cooking Channel

Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 1/2 sticks of soft unsalted butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup toffee candy bits (I used Heath Toffee Bits)
1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips, but I'm sure dark chocolate chips would taste great too)

Directions:
  • Set the oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Use your hands to mix all of the ingredients until you see your cookie dough form.
  • Drop heaping tablespoon scoops of dough about 3 inches apart on the baking sheets and bake until the edges are golden and centers are still soft, about 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets about 2 minutes and then carefully transfer to wire racks to cool.
