The best gifts, I feel, are ones that can be eaten and shared. It’s easy to guess what I give friends and loved ones on an occasion.
Take this basic cookie dough recipe, then get creative with your mix ins. In the past I’ve used pretzels, nuts, banana chips, etc.
Chocolate, Toffee & Pecan Cookies
2 1/4 cups (300g) Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
Pinch of salt
2 sticks (229g) Butter
3/4 cup (143g) Granulated Sugar
3/4 cup (150g) Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 cups (340g) Chocolate Chips
1 cup (125g) Toffee Bits
1 cup (120g) Whole Pecans
Preheat oven to 375f/190c degrees.
Stir the flour, baking soda and salt together and set aside.
Beat together the granulated sugar, brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture and stir until combined.
Mix the flour a little at a time into the butter/egg mixture until combined.
Stir in the mix-ins until distributed evenly into the dough.
Drop a 2 tablespoon portion onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place them about 2 inches apart as they will spread during baking
Bake for 10-13 minutes or until they are golden brown around the edges.
