12 Days of Cookies! Day 3: Chewy Toffee Coffee Cookies
I remember when I first ate a Skors bar....one could argue it was my first love. So who wouldn't think toffee wouldn't be AMAZING in a cookie and it IS! How about adding a little coffee to kick up the flavor too!
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
1 tablespoon hot water
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup almond toffee bits
Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Stir together espresso powder and water. Add to butter mixture, stirring well.
Combine flour and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Stir in toffee bits. Cover and chill dough 30 minutes.
Roll dough to 1/2" thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with a 2 1/2" round cutter or Christmas cookie cutter. Place 2" apart on ungreased baking sheets.Bake at 275° for 50 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool
