Serving Size:



¾ cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
¾ cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 ¼ cups flour
2 ¼ cups oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1 package toffee bits*


1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Combine flour, oats, soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

3. Cream butter and sugars.

4. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla.

5. Gradually beat in flour mixture.

6. Stir in toffee bits.

7. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes until just turning brown in the bottoms and around the edges.


* I think the original recipe had in mind little toffee bits like Hershey’s Heath Bits ‘O’ Brickle Baking Pieces. The cookies are a lot more interesting if the pieces of candy are bigger. I lightly smash a 10-ounce bag of Werther’s toffee candies. I put them in a Ziploc bag, place the bag on my anvil then hit each piece one time. This keeps the pieces pretty large which is what makes these cookies interesting.
