Monday Food Post - Toffee Butter Icebox Cookies

It has been a long time since I made any cookies, but when I came across these here at Mom On Time Out, they looked so good I put them on my list for whenever.  Yesterday was whenever.

Toffee Butter Icebox Cookies
Makes 4 dozen

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg, room temperature
2½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup Heath toffee bits

Cream butter and sugar together.

Add in the egg and extract and mix until well combined.

Stir in flour, mixing until fully incorporated.

Fold in Heath toffee bits.

Divide dough in half and place on top of a sheet of plastic wrap. 

Form the dough into a log about 6 inches long and 1.5 inches in diameter. 

Wrap each log with the plastic wrap and refrigerate dough rolls for 1-2 hours or until nice and firm.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove plastic wrap from rolls and cut into ¼ inch slices.

Place slices about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

What did we think?  Definitely a big thumb's up from both of us.  I had to cook them longer than the 8 minutes mentioned.  They took at least 12 minutes in my oven.  I know oven temperatures vary.  

Gregg likes his cookies crisp and these were crisp and those toffee bits were delicious.

This made two logs and I have put one in the freezer.  The nice thing about them is you can cut off a few at a time so you don't end up eating too many.  Believe me is not hard to do with these things. We had two for dessert and I am looking forward to have one with a cup of tea tomorrow morning.  I'm looking forward to going back to Mom On Time Out to see what other delicious recipes she has.


  1. Denise, these look delicious and would be great with a lovely cup of tea! :)

  2. Oh, so yummy! Thank you for sharing these! x Karen

  3. Uma delicia para acompanhar com chá.
    Um abraço e boa semana.

  4. Mmmm I could just sink my teeth into one of those.

  5. Cookies and tea are a perfect combo, Denise, but I fear that having only 1 cookie would be difficult!

  6. These look delicious, so will have to give the recipe a try. Baked chocolate chip cookies yesterday, but just the age-old recipe.

  7. the recipe is what my mother used to make sugar cookies, but no heath bars and no refrigerate. these sound delish. and look good to

  8. I've had these, at least something with a similar recipe... they are delicious!

  9. Recipe read, copied, and printed!
    Heath bars are my very favorite candy, so I'd better take your advice and put the second log in the freezer.

  10. We can't eat cookies any more (sob) unless I sneak one when Bill isn't there. But this is a great time to thank you for last weeks easy Chinese noodle recipe which I made this weekend. Yummy.

  11. Those cookies look delicious and so easy to make.

  12. Yesterday I was was pulling a few cooking recipes in preparation for the holiday baking, now I may have to add one more to my list. These sound and look yummy.

  13. Yes, oven temperatures can vary oven to oven ...
    These look most yummy!

    All the best Jan

  14. Oh, I want to come back and get this recipe...I love heath bars.

  15. Ooh, this looks like a good one to add to my holiday baking list. I don't eat cookies all year, but all bets are off between Thanksgiving and Christmas!
