Chocolate Chip, Toffee, Toasted Pecan and Coconut Cookies

There are at least a million chocolate chip cookie recipes out there. At least that many. Ever since I first made this recipe earlier this year, I haven’t felt the need to try any more.

And believe me, I’ve tried quite a few. I was convinced Alton Brown’s The Chewy was “The One” but I still kept trying more recipes. I tried The Puffy, The NY Times recipe, The Cooks Illustrated recipe, a recipe with pudding in it, a soft and chewy one, and The Levain Bakery recipe. None of them left me satisfied like this one does.

My friends have requested it many many times since their debut in March of this year. And I’m happy to oblige. Hubby, who claims he’s “not a chocolate guy” has proclaimed it his favorite cookie. This is coming from a guy who also claims he likes cookie dough better than baked cookies. This cookie has changed his mind people. And he’s a stubborn man (love you babe!)

So as you can imagine, over the course of the last 8 months, I have inevitably mixed in all sorts of goodies into this cookie batter. I never change the basic recipe, just the things I’m throwing in at the end. This combination of chocolate chips, toffee, toasted pecans, and toasted coconut was such a success, I had to post about it. They might be my favorite combination to date.

If you’re looking for a great chocolate chip cookie recipe, give this one a shot. Whether you use all chocolate chips or mix things up like I have here, I hope this one steals your heart like it has mine.

Chocolate Chip, Toffee, Toasted Pecan and Coconut Cookies

My favorite chocolate chip recipes with toffee, toasted pecan, and toasted coconut mixed in!

Yield: 2 dozen large cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
4 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cups brown sugar
3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee pieces
1/2 cup toasted coconut
1/2 cup toasted pecans
sea salting, for sprinkling (optional)

Directions:

Melt the butter in a saucepan until brown and set it aside to cool.

Cream the butter, cream cheese and both sugars together with an electric mixer until smooth.

Add the eggs and beat until combined.

Turn the mixer on low and mix in the flour, salt and baking soda until just combined.

Add the chocolate chips, toffee, coconut, and pecans and mix until just incorporated.

Cover the dough and refrigerate until chilled, several hours or overnight.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a few trays with baking paper.

Roll 1/4 cup size balls of dough and place them on the trays. Flatten slightly. Sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake for 9-12 minutes, until the edges are golden.

    I MADE HOMEMADE PEPPERMINT PATTIES WHEN I WAS LITTLE, THEY WERE A CHRISTMAS TRADITION! I REFUSE TO DO IT ANYMORE THOUGH, THE PATTIES ALWAYS FELL APART ON ME WHEN I DIPPED THEM.

    THESE COOKIES LOOK DELICIOUS. I WOULD TOTALLY BE ON BOARD WITH THAT 😀

    I visited my cousin today and she had made these cookies. She shared them with us and they were the bomb! Be careful because they are highly addictive! Rich but yummy! I will be making them.
