Toffee Walnut Cookies from Inn Cuisine (Dec 2010)

Recipe Review..."Toffee Walnut Cookies".....From Inn Cuisine

It's nearly Christmas and time for cookies!  I have a few favorites from my childhood.  Every year we would have tins of Chocolate Chip & Sugar Cookies.  Somewhere along the way my mom discovered Snickerdoodles and for me that was the ultimate cookie.  I am always looking to add to my Christmas cookie list and I found one to try on a bed and breakfast web site...Inn Cuisine.  The Toffee Walnut Cookie, Yum....I gathered my ingredients....

My baking helper needed some

Riverbend Inn's Toffee Walnut Cookies

Recipe courtesy Riverbend Inn B&B
Yield: about 6 dozen cookies

  • 2 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 & 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 & 1/2 cups Heath English Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits 
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In a medium-large bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking soda; set aside. In a separate, smaller bowl combine toffee bits and walnuts; set aside. Using an electric mixer, cream butter until fluffy; add sugar and beat for a couple of minutes until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Alternatively mix in toffee mixture and flour mixture, a third at a time, until well blended. Chill cookie dough for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat liners. Spoon out dough and roll in small 1-inch balls (about the size of a large marble). Place balls three inches away from each other on cookie sheet(s). Bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges are just starting to brown. Remove from oven and let cool on sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.

So what do I rate this recipe on my cooking scale?  I would have to give them a 9.5/10.  They were soft chewy and yummy.  I suggest you give them a try.
