I got this recipe from kingarthurflour.com I haven't tried them, they were a request in a post. For those of you that don't know, King Arthur Flour is MUCH more than a flour company..they are a bakers paradise. You should check them out, and request a free catalog. Bet you'll have a HUGE wishlist! (makes 2-3 inch cookies)
- 3⁄4 cup butter
- 1 1⁄4 cups lightly packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1⁄8 teaspoon butter-rum flavoring (optional)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 large egg
- 2 1⁄4 cups king arthur all-purpose flour or 2 1⁄4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup English toffee bits
- 1 cup caramel-flavored bits or 1 cup chocolate chips or 1 cup macadamia nuts or 1 cup cinnamon bark or 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, flavors, salt and baking soda.
- Add the egg and beat until fluffy.
- Add the flour and stir until well-blended.
- Stir in bits and/or chips, and the nuts, if you're using them.
- Drop the dough by generous tablespoonfuls onto ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheets (our tablespoon cookie scoop, works well here), leaving about 2 inches between cookies.
- Bake the cookies in a preheated 375°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes; 10 minutes will give you chewier cookies, 12 minutes crisper.
- Note: For chewy,"bendable" cookies, remove them from the oven while they still look"under-cooked" in the center; for crisp, crunchy cookies, bake until evenly golden brown.
- Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets before transferring them to racks to cool completely.
Made these when leeannr won the Amazing Race elimination guess. So glad I did. I actually made another batch the next day with chocolate chips and have frozen them for my 4th of July party. Just delicious!
Oh why didn't I take up baking when I was skinny? I would have eaten all 36 cookies myself - well maybe I would have left 2 cookies for my husband!! I used chocolate chips & didn't include the pecans - they were delicious. Thanx Leeann!
These are quite tasty, however they are very rich and buttery. I made mine with the toffee, chocolate chips, and pecans. The pecans are really a nice touch. I expected them to have more moisture and flatten out more, but they are a chunky, drier cookie. I'll submit my photos for you to see...
