Heath Bar Cookies
recipe adapted from this recipe at Simply Recipes
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped Heath Bar pieces (approximately one bag)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional, I didn't add any)
- Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine Heath Bar pieces and chopped walnuts. Set aside.
- Beat together the butter and sugar.
- Beat in eggs one at a time, and vanilla.
- Alternatively mix in the Heath Bar mixture and the flour mixture, a third at a time, until well blended.
- Chill cookie dough for about an hour. (the only downfall is waiting :)).
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- On cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or Silpat, spoon out the cookie dough in small 1-inch diameter balls (size of a large marble). Place dough balls 3 inches away from each other on the cookie sheets. (These cookies do spread some so be sure to leave enough room in between!)
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are just starting to brown.
- Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.
- Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
