Sooo.... Chocolate Toffee Oatmeal Cookies trial 2, not as successful as I had hoped. Very positive responses for both trials, though. But testers favored trial 1. So as promised... here is the recipe.
1/2 cup (one stick) plus 6 tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups oats (I used Quaker old fashioned oats)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup toffee chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; mix well.
Process oats in food processor until in small pieces. Add oats, chocolate, and toffee. Mix well.
Drop dough in rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8-11 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 1 minute on cookie sheet. Remove to wire rack and let cool completely.
Lots of people liked this recipe, but it just wasn't quite what I was looking for. So, onto the next recipe, and I'm thinkin butterscotch!!
