I’m late. Originally I was going to post these cookies for Christmas and then Valentine’s Day. Now, it’s almost March and I’m finally getting around to sharing these with you.
These are some of my favorite cookies. They have all the good stuff: chocolate chips, toffee pieces and dried cranberries. One of my friends lovingly refers to these as trail mix cookies because they have so many add-ins.
For these cookies, you’ll need
- 1 cup of butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 2 and 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 and 1/2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 and 1/2 cups of cranberries
- 3/4 cup of toffee bits
In a stand mixer, cream the room temperature butter and sugar using the flat beater attachment. Add the eggs and vanilla.
Separately mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Then gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.
Stir in the chocolate chips, cranberries and toffee bits. Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter onto a cookie sheet that has been lightly sprayed with a nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350° for approximately 12 minutes. When the edges turn brown, these cookies are done.
I’ve always toyed with the idea of adding chopped pecans, but never have. I don’t know the nuts would make the cookie too busy. If you get a chance to make these, let me know how they turn out!
