Oatmeal Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Enjoy this great recipe I found on a blog called Coconut & Lime:
6 oz semisweet chips
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup toffee bits
4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, at room temperature

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, mix together the butter, vanilla and sugar. Add the egg, beat until fluffy. Then add the flour, baking powder, salt, and oatmeal. Mix until well combined. Fold in toffee bits and chips. Place tablespoon sized blobs of dough on the lined cookie sheet about 1/2 inch apart and bake for 12-14 minutes or until they look "set" and the bottoms are just golden. Carefully remove from baking sheet and cool completely. Makes about 2 dozen cookies
I made these delicious cookies this past weekend for a Super Bowl party and they were a big hit with party goers and also with my co-workers, who benefited from them the next morning at work. I love toffee and think it's a great element to add to cookies to mix things up. One note of warning on this cookie dough. Once you combine all the ingredents together, it doesn't look like enough dough to make 2 dozen cookies. But if you follow the directions and use a tablespoon to measure out the cookie dough, you'll have just the right amout of cookies to take to a party - and maybe have a few extra to enjoy at home with some milk the next morning!
