Toffee Pecan Cookies

I wanted to make some cookies from the Tate’s Bakeshop cookbook that was sent to me (be sure to enter my giveaway to win a copy for yourself!) and I needed to make some cookies for a holiday cookie swap. As I was flipping through the cookie section of the cookbook, and these cookie caught my eye. I love toffee and I’m still on a pecan kick thanks to all the delicious Thanksgiving treats I made.

I followed the recipe except I toasted my pecans. I love the flavor that toasted nuts bring to any recipe. I prefer chewy cookies so I took them out after 12 minutes in the oven and they were perfect for me.

I actually made these a week in advance and then frozen them since I knew I wouldn’t have time to bake right before the cookie swap. These were a big hit and I definitely recommend making these if you enjoy toffee.

    I prefer chewy cookies over crispy too! I bet the toasted pecans added some great flavor and crunch!
