Are you ready for some crunchy, buttery, pecan cookies with bits of chocolate-covered toffee bits? Who wouldn’t be? They’re easy to make and easy to eat! Keep cookies stored loosely covered with plastic wrap or in a cookie jar with a loose-fitting lid. An airtight storage container may soften your crunchy cookies.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • ¾ cup chocolate-covered toffee bits (such as Heath®), or to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; whisk until well combined.
  2. 2 Place butter and brown sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg whites and vanilla extract, and beat for 1 more minute. Gradually add flour mixture to the bowl and mix until completely combined. Fold in pecans and toffee bits until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. 3 Move the bowl to the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  4. 4 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  5. 5 Scoop dough into heaping tablespoon-sized balls with a spoon or cookie scoop. Place dough balls about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet and flatten just slightly with the palm of your hand.
  6. 6 Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set and lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Chef's Notes

The toffee bits may be found in the same area of the store as bags of chocolate chips; If you only have 1 baking sheet, return cookie dough to the refrigerator between batches and allow baking sheet to cool before making the next batch of cookies.

Reviews

  1. A great cookie. Baked them for 11minutes, just right. This will be a “keeper.”
  2. These cookies were a hit. I made 20 with Heath only, and 20 with this recipe. All I can say is [there gone]. You have to try them for yourself. YUMMY!
  3. Family ate the entire batch I one day. Enough said.
