Why This Recipe Works
The grand prize-winning recipe in our Christmas Cookies contest, Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies are crisp, buttery, and flavored with brown sugar, pecans, and crunchy toffee bits. For the cookie dough, we creamed the brown sugar and softened butter together until light, smooth, and airy. Heath toffee bits added a contrasting crunchiness to the crisp cookie and boosted the flavor of the brown sugar. To bring out the flavor of the pecans, we toasted them briefly in a skillet. Finally, melted chocolate chips made an easy and delicious icing for Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies.
