Toffee Coffee Oatmeal Cookies.
It’s been a little while since I posted a cookie recipe here at The Creative Life in Between.
But those that know me well know that I almost always have some kind of fresh baked cookies in the house – for “just in case!”
In fact…. I’m kinda known – – in some very small, insignificant circles – – for my creative culinary cookie craftiness.
This and my fluent grasp of the Ubby Dubby language are the talents I always say I would use if I were in the Miss America Pageant – HA!!!!
Well – I’ve been saving up and have a couple really good recipes to share! So this week is going to be cookie recipe week.
I made this cookie recipe for a recent party at my house, and they were a huge hit!
This cookie is a wonderful chewy, but crisp on the edges dream of milk chocolate, toffee, oatmeal, and a hint of coffee for good measure! O…. M…. G…. !!!
Get ready for a new addiction! This is one I have trouble passing up and is dangerous to keep in my house! Bake them if you dare!
Toffee Coffee Oatmeal Cookies*
- 1 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup strong coffee (cooled)
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 3 cups Quaker oatmeal (either quick or old-fashioned, uncooked)
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 8-oz. packages milk chocolate toffee bits
- 1 cup coarsely crumbled sugar ice cream cones (about 5 cones)
In large bowl with electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until creamy. Add egg; beat well. Beat in coffee and vanilla. Add salt, baking soda, and flour until combined. Remove from electric mixer and stir in 3 cups oatmeal with wooden spoon. Stir in toffee bits and crumbled sugar cones just until well incorporated. Refrigerate dough for several hours or overnight to chill.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll tablespoons full of dough into round balls (golf ball sized) and place on baking stone or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes just until golden brown. Allow to cool on baking stone for additional 5-10 minutes. Transfer to cooling wire racks to cool completely. Freeze well.
