Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies

Can you ever have too many chocolate chip cookies recipes? I think not. It all depends on what kind of cookies you are in the mood for....cakey, extra chocolate, thin and crispy...the possibilities are endless.

These are slightly cakey, they don't bake up thin and crispy like traditional Toll House cookies but with the addition of another kind of chocolate and toffee chips and they definitely can stand on their own merits. The recipe also makes about a zillion cookies so they are good for when you have to take a bunch to a pot luck or to your visiting teaching ladies because it's the last day of the month and you forgot...not that I EVER do anything like that! :)

Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies

1 3/4 c softened butter
1 3/4 c brown sugar
1 1/4 c granulated sugar
4 eggs
5 1/2 Tbs water
2 tsp vanilla
6 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 c semi sweet chocolate chips
2 c milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 c toffee chips

In large mixing bowl cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs, water, and vanilla; mix until creamy. Add flour, salt, and baking soda; mix well. Gently fold in chips mixing just until they are mixed in. Don't over mix and break up your chocolate chips or you will have dirty looking dough.

Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared cookied sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes (my oven takes about 11 minutes) or until golden brown. Don't overbake, you want them to look slightly uncooked in the middle when you pull them out.

Makes about 6 doz cookies
