Happy Martha Monday! Today’s cookies isn’t technically in her Martha Stewart Cookies book but it is most definitely a Martha Stewart cookie. She made this cookie on the Today show several years ago, at least I think it was the Today show. It was so long ago but since then I’ve made this recipe over and over again, especially at this time of the year.
I LOVE THIS COOKIE! and I hope you too!
Easy/Hard: Easy peasy lemon squeezy (That’s a Rowanism!)
Ingredient availability: You can buy toffee chips now but I prefer using Werther’s candies.
What I like about this cookie: Everything!
Baking experience: Super easy and all in one bowl! You then put into plastic wrap and form into a roll. Then chill and cute into 1/2 inch slices. Now this makes huge cookies, so I also cut them in half again, for a more manageable size. Unless you like a big cookies. Also don’t freak out when you remove them from the oven and they are big and puffy and then go back a few minutes later and they are flat as a pancake.
Taste: OMG so good. The oatmeal, the chocolate and the toffee make a perfect combination!
- 1 cup unsalted butter softened
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups oats
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate (chips or coarsely chopped)
- 1 cup toffee pieces (Werthers or packaged toffee bits) I used my Cuisinart to chop them into wee bits
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Combine butter and sugar and mix until light and fluffy.
- Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
- Mix in flour and soda until combined.
- Add chocolate and toffee pieces. You’ll probably have to scrape down the bowl and mix again.
- Divide into three equal(ish) portions and form into logs using plastic wrap.
- Chill for 1/2 hour
- To bake, cut into 1/2 inch slices (or slice 1/2 inch and then cut in half)
- Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes
- Remove from oven when browned and cool on parchment paper. They will be come apart easily if you remove from pan and put on wire rack too soon. I leave mine on the pan for 10-15 minutes then transfer to rack that has a piece of parchment on top. Helps the cookies hold their shape.
- let cool and enjoy (however, they are damn good when still warm!)
I used these cookies as a part of the gifts for teachers, bus drivers etc. OH SO YUMMY!
Thanks for looking!
