Toffee Chocolate Chip Shortbread

If you like shortbread, you’ll like these cookies.  This must be the first time I’ve made shortbread for my family because they weren’t too crazy about these cookies.  I think they bit into the cookies expecting regular cookie texture and instead got shortbread which threw them off.  The cookies  have a good flavor with a shortbread texture and are quick and easy to make.  I doubled the recipe and it still didn’t make a lot so if you want more than a few dozen, triple or quadruple the recipe.  This recipe came from “All You” magazine.

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, room temperature

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1/2 cup toffee bits or chopped up Heath or Skor bars

1/2 cup pecans or walnuts if desired

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Stir in flour and salt just until dough forms.  Fold in chips and toffee and nuts if including.

2  Roll dough into 1″ balls or use a small scoop to form balls.  Place on cookie sheets 1″ apart pressing down lightly on each one with a moistened palm.

3  Bake until cookies are firm and just golden around the edges, 12 – 14 minutes.  Let sit in cooling rack for 5 minutes then remove to trays to cool completely.  Store tightly covered.
