How To Make Toffee Cookies?

Step One: Cream Butter Until Fluffy

In the bowl of a stand mixer or a medium bowl, cream together the cubed cold butter and the sugars, on low speed for 1-2 minutes. Increase speed to medium to high and continue beating for another 2-3 minutes until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Step Two: Add Eggs And Vanilla Extract

Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and add the vanilla extract, mixing well after each addition.

Step Three: Mix In The Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl add the baking soda, cornstarch, salt, cake our and all-purpose flour, whisk to combine. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture 1 cup at a time. Mix using a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula until incorporated.

Step Four: Prepare The Chips Mixture

In 2 medium bowls divide the baking chips, toffee pieces, pistachios in half, each half in a separate bowl. Add 1 bowl of the baking chips, toffee and pistachios to the dough, on low speed and mix until incorporated.

Step Five: Make Cookie Dough Balls

Remove the dough from the mixer and cover, refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out cookie dough and by using your hands, shape the chilled dough into large cookie dough balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Step Six: Cover With Chocolate Chips

Cover the entire surface of the dough ball with baking chips mixture from the second bowl. Fill in any and all gaps with the baking chips.

Step Seven: Bake Cookies Until Golden Brown

Place the cookie dough balls on the prepared cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle each dough ball with coarse sea salt. Bake only 6 dough balls to 1 baking tray.

Step Eight: Cool Cookies

Bake in the center rack of the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool completely, ideally for at least 15 minutes on a cooling rack.

Step Nine: Serve

Once cooled, serve these delectable Toffee Cookies with Pistachio and Chocolate alongside a glass of milk or a cup of coffee for a delightful treat. Enjoy the perfect balance of sweet toffee, crunchy pistachios, and rich chocolate in every bite!

  • Brown Butter Upgrade: Elevate the cookie’s richness by substituting unsalted butter with homemade browned butter to enhance depth of flavor.

Variations

  • Brown Butter Toffee Delight: Utilize brown butter in creating decadent brown butter toffee cookies that, combined with brown sugar, offer an irresistibly delicious treat.

Storage Instructions

  • Cooling: Allow the baked toffee chocolate chip cookies to cool completely on a wire rack after coming out of the oven.
  • Refrigeration (Optional): While toffee cookies generally don’t require refrigeration, you can choose to store them in the refrigerator to maintain their texture. Place them in an airtight container, separating layers with parchment or wax paper, and refrigerate for up to 1-2 weeks.
  • Freezing: For longer storage, freeze baked toffee cookies by placing them in a single layer on a baking sheet until solid. Transfer the frozen cookies to a freezer-safe bag or container, separating layers with parchment or wax paper. Label with the freezing date and store for up to 2-3 months. Thaw at room temperature before serving.
