Fireman's Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

OMG OMG OMG Jenn made these again last night with just a minor "addition" to the original recipe found on allrecipes.com.  She added a little cinnamon to the batter that gave it a wonderful "warm and earthy" flavor that just upped the I want value of these cookies.  Now the question is - can I get her to leave some home when she goes back to school on Wednesday.  I really can't believe its time for the semester to begin again but alas it is.  Her roommates are going to be enjoying these when they come back (she's such a good roommate)  If you are looking for a good cookie recipe ... this is it!  I mean chocolate chips, toffee are perfect together ... add a nice mug of coffee and you are ready to close out the world and say good night!

I know they don't look any different than any other of the thousands of chocolate chip cookies but perhaps it is the toffee but they really are so much different in taste - and then when she added the cinnamon - it was a POP of flavor that just hit the spot


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
  •  1 teaspoon salt 
  •  1 1/8 teaspoons baking soda 
  •  1 cup butter, softened 
  •  1/2 cup white sugar 
  •  1/2 cup packed brown sugar 
  •  1 tablespoon vanilla extract 
  •  2 eggs 
  •  12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips 
  •  6 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered English toffee, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt and baking soda.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Mix until smooth. Add the vanilla and the eggs and beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped candy bars. Mix until combined.
  4. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately remove the cookies from the sheet and let them cool on racks.
