Choco-Toffee Crunch Cookies

I you are looking for crispy cookies studded with nuts, toffee bits and chocolate chips then this recipe is perfect. It was very satisfying and retained it's crunch for several days and was just great dipped in milk or plain. Making cookies with my daughter is always a pleasurable activity and she particularly loves chocolate chip cookies so I wanted to try this out with bits of toffee as well. The recipe below makes a LOT of cookies so I would recommend halving it if you want around 24 cookies.

CHOCO-TOFFEE CRUNCH COOKIES


Ingredients: (makes 4 dozen cookies)

Oats - half cup (I used old fashioned, plain)
All purpose Flour - 2.25 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp

Eggs - 2
Vanilla - 1 tsp
English Toffee Bars (e.g. Heath/Skor) - abt 4 oz (chopped into small bits)
Walnuts - about 1 cup, chopped & lightly toasted
Semi sweet chocolate chips - 1 cup

Method:
1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees F & line baking sheets with parchment paper.
2) Run oats in a food processor and combine with flour, baking powder, soda & salt using a whisk.

  19. Hey Lavanya, thanks for dropping by! Actually even I thought it must be tzatziki, but it was definitely not yogurt based as far as I could tell..it tasted close to mayo, that's the reason I thought of substituting it with salad dressings!

  20. And actually to answer your question, oats add a lot of texture and crispiness to falafels!
