Toffee Cashew Cookies

Do you like your cookies crunchy or chewy? For me it depends on the cookie. With these, I was looking for a good crunch. Have you ever tried Trader Joe’s caramel cashew cookies? These reminded me of those crunchy cookies.

However, if you love the crunch, you have to wait a day. On day one, these are chewy with a little bit of a crunchy exterior. Delicious!

But day 2, if you still have any left, OH EM GEE. Crunchy and perfect in coffee or milk, or straight up! Enjoy!

Toffee Cashew Cookie Recipe:

12 Tbsp butter
1 3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup cashews, chopped
1 cup Heath milk chocolate toffee bits
Brown butter in small saucepan and allow to boil for a couple minutes. Remove from heat.
In mixer, beat melted butter with brown sugar for 3-4 minutes. Add salt and eggs. Beat in vanilla. Slowly beat in flour, baking soda and baking powder. Fold in the cashews and toffee bits.
Roll dough into one inch balls. Dough will be crumbly. Tap tops with fork or press with thumb, lightly.
Bake on parchment lined baking sheet in a 375 degree oven for about 8-10 minutes. Remove and enjoy.

    Sadly I have never been to Trader Joe’s. We have driven past but I have been deprived of this wonderful place. I am thinking we remedy that on our shopping trip!

    Cookies with coffee…sounds like breakfast to me. Who needs the diet:-)

    Ive never tried those cookies from TJs…I have so much of my own stuff I hate buying baked goods. As in, my freezer runneth over.

    I love toffee bits. HUGELY! These cookies look great!

    yum! I LOVE toffee. Some days I like crunchy cookies and some days I like chewy/soft cookies. If I’m ever in the mood for crunchy, I want to make these. Toffee is just one of my favorite flavors. I always get the toffee nut latte at starbucks!

    Yes, I’ve tried the caramel cashew cookies from Trader Joes. They are soo good. Your toffee cashew cookie recipe looks great too! I’m going to bookmark this.

    On crunchy or chewy cookies?
    Same here, it depends on the cookie. I like my chocolate chip cookies warm and chewy. Oatmeal raisin cookies, also chewy. These toffee cashew cookies, I think I’d like them crunch to go along with my coffee.

    These look so delicious! I love dunking crunchy cookies in milk, it’s heavenly! I’ve really been wanting to buy some toffee bits because I’ve seen so many amazing recipes that use them. This is just one of the many :) I really need to get on it and buy some already! Fabulous recipe, I can just imagine how amazing these taste!

    We don’t have Trader Joe’s in my area. I like both crunchy and chewy cookies. Great recipe.

    Yum! I love chewy and crunchy, so I’ll eat half the batch the first day and the other half the 2nd. That way I have best of both worlds! :)

    Cashews and toffee — two of my favorites together! I’ll probably under-bake them a hair. I like them chewy EVERY day.
