Butterscotch Toffee Cookies



Ingredients

• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon cornstarch
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
• ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
• ½ cup granulated sugar
• 1 large egg, room temperature
• 1 large egg yolk, room temperature
• 1 and ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1 and ½ cups chocolate toffee pieces
• 1 cup butterscotch chips

Directions

1. Combine the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt. Stir with a whisk. Set aside.
2. Combine melted butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl. Stir with a whisk until the mixture is smooth and free of clumps. Whisk in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla.
3. Add the flour mixture and stir until well blended. Fold in the chocolate toffee pieces and butterscotch chips.
4. Cover and refrigerate dough for 2 hours or overnight.
5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll cookie dough into 1.5 tablespoons-sized balls and place them 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.
6. Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until lightly brown and just underdone. Cool the cookies on the pan for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
