Hi there, sugar!

So the latest recipe made Fred very happy, ’cause he sure loves a good cookie.   Fred’s definition of a ‘good cookie’ is one that contains chocolate chips.

This one has the name ‘Minnesota Munchers’ for reasons I can not figure out.  I know someone who grew up in that state and he said he’d never had one himself.  He thought the recipe sounded great, so he was sure after me to make it.  So make it I did!
So on to the recipe!

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup toffee bits
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. In a medium bowl, cream
together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour,
baking powder and salt; stir into creamed mixture. Fold in milk chocolate and semisweet chips,
toffee bits and pecans. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in
preheated oven. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on wire
racks. Makes 4 dozen.

 

Doesn’t that sound great?  It’s basically a chocolate chip cookie with added toffee and pecans.  They did turn out pretty too.

And tasty!  Fred said he’d like it a lot if I’d make these almost as often as I make regular chocolate chip cookies.  I’d call them a success!

Until next time, toodles!
