Sparkling Butter Toffee Cookies

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes!!! I've been making this yummy cookie for several years now. (since 2009) I originally copied this recipe on an index card from the Land O' Lakes website. So that is your first clue that these cookies have lots of buttery goodness!!!

Sparkling Butter Toffee Cookies

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup English or almond toffee bits

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy.  Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; reduce speed to low.  Beat until well mixed. Stir in toffee bits by hand.  Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are just lightly browned. (Do Not Over Bake) Sprinkle with sugar while warm. (Makes 5 dozen cookies)

Love this sweet buttery cookie!!! The addition of toffee candy makes it such a unique surprise....a fun change from your typical chocolate chips.  Sometimes I buy the bag of English toffee chips (which you can find in the baking section of the grocery store) or I just break up two or three Heath bars.  These cookies never last long in my house so I like to double the recipe. Enjoy!
