- 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 sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups chopped Heath Bar pieces (Eight 1.4 ounce bars)
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Heath Bars are popular American chocolate-covered-toffee candy bars.
Heath Bar toffee bits are often available in the baking section of
grocery stores. Either chopped up candy bars or the bits can be used
for this recipe. The bars have chocolate, the bits don't.
1 Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine Heath Bar pieces and chopped walnuts. Set
2 Beat together the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a
time, and vanilla.
3 Alternatively mix in the Heath Bar mixture and the flour
mixture, a third at a time, until well blended. Chill cookie dough
for at least 30 minutes (better an hour).
4 Preheat oven to 350°F. On cookie sheets lined with parchment
paper or Silpat, spoon out the cookie dough in small 1-inch diameter
balls (size of a large marble). Place dough balls 3 inches away from
each other on the cookie sheets. (Make sure there is plenty of room
between the cookie balls, and that the cookie balls aren't too big.
These cookies spread!)
5 Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are just starting to
brown. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Then transfer
the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
