I’m back!  It has been a crazy couple of weeks adjusting to our new lifestyle change, traveling to Hawaii for a week,

IMG_1060 and getting used to having a full-time job!  Thank you for being patient with me as I took a small hiatus from baking and blogging.

I will say, I have missed it and you so much!  I baked today and it was like visiting with an old friend!  I felt so good and complete!  And I cannot believe that I almost did not share these Toffee Brownie Cookies with you because I thought they weren’t pretty enough!

Toffee Brownie Cookies {Satisfy My Sweet Tooth}My brother tasted one of these Toffee Brownie Cookies and said that it was the best thing he had ever put in his mouth!  And he is my regular taste tester, so that means a lot coming from him!  These cookies are like a gooey, slightly under-baked brownie and they stay that way for days!  The soft and melty chocolate cookie center is contrasted perfectly with the crunchy and slightly salty toffee that is inside and that I sprinkled over the top of the cookies.

When you bake these Toffee Brownie Cookies, you may be tempted to bake them longer than you should.  You will know they are done when the tops are cracked, the edges feel slightly firm, but the middle still feels very soft.  If you can resist baking them longer, and let them cool completely before removing them from the pan, your patience will be rewarded with an incredibly rich, tender and ooey gooey brownie-like cookie!

    Made these tonight for a girls’ brunch on Sat! I made a baking no-no and didn’t check my pantry before mixing my ingredients…I didn’t have vanilla! SO, I added peanut butter to add flavor instead. We loved them and agreed they are well worth a bolus of insulin 🙂

    These sound so great! The only thing that might make them better is peanuts. 😉 Ha, ha! It was so great to meet you! I’ll have to get with you about Hawaii. Now that we are on the west coast I think we might make it there next year.
