Try It Thursday: Chocolate Chip Cookies & Peanut Butter Toffee Cookies

Hello baking friends! Thanks so much for stopping by today for a super basic but super delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe! And, you're in luck- Robert doesn't eat chocolate anymore, so when his sweet tooth is calling, I just change up the chocolate chips to make him peanut butter toffee cookies. 

I don't know about you, but there is no need for me to make a batch of cookies that results in over 4 dozen cookies! So, the recipe I'm sharing with you today is actually a half batch, but it still results in approximately 2 dozen cookies. 

Scroll on down for the ingredients and directions...

* 1 and 1/8 cups flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 softened stick of butter
* ~1/3 cup sugar (or 1/4 + 1/8 cup)
* ~1/3 cup packed brown sugar (or 1/4 + 1/8 cup)
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 egg
* A little over 3/4 cup of chocolate chips (This is IF you are just making chocolate chip cookies)

***If you plan to divide your dough to make 2 varieties, then I'd suggest about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and then 1/3 cup of peanut butter chips and 1/3 cup of Heath Bits o Brickle toffee bits.

* Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
* Beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and egg until mixed.
* Add in flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined.
* Add in your chocolate chips and mix OR divide your dough into separate bowls and add in your chips.
* Create about tablespoon size dough balls and bake for approximately 9 - 11 minutes.
* Enjoy!
