Lemon Toffee Cookies

  • I've been experimenting with cookie recipes trying to make a list of what I will make at Christmas time.  I usually make about 7 or 8 different kinds of cookies, some are favorites, some are requests from the folks I give cookies to at the holidays and some are just new recipes I've tried.    
  • I think recipe will be a keeper, you can change it up by adding chocolate, nuts or other type of flavoring.  It's a very simple basic cookie recipe.

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 2 Tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup toffee pieces
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar, for rolling cookies in

  1. Cream together butter and 1 cup of sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add in the egg, lemon extract, and corn syrup,  and beat until combined.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Add to creamed mixture, beating a little at a time until fully incorporated and smooth. Stir in the toffee  chips. Cover dough and chill in the fridge for one hour. (may do longer just take out 15 minutes or so before you are ready to bake)
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll chilled dough into balls (about ⅛ cup each) and roll in the remaining ¼ cup sugar. Bake on prepared cookie sheets for 10-12 minutes, until edges are set. Cool on a wire rack before enjoying.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week and Always Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the things You L♥ve.
