Delicious Toffee Cookies

In 1968 my grandparents’ best friends The Battins, shared this toffee recipe with my grandmother and since then it has become a family Christmas favorite.

104 Mrs. Battin’s Cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 20-25 minutes depending on oven

Oven Temperature: 350 degrees

Servings: 24 2X2 squares

Cookie Ingredients

1 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon almond extract

2 teaspoon strong brewed coffee

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups flour

1 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Glaze Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter, melted

3/4 cups sifted powered sugar

1/8 teaspoon almond extract

2 tablespoons milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and brown sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add almond extract and coffee to butter mixture and mix well. Blend baking powder, salt, and flour in a separate bowl.  Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Add chocolate chips and nuts to mixture. Once well mixed, press into a greased jelly roll pan. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

While cookie is baking, prepare the glaze by combining melted butter, powdered sugar, extract, and milk.

Spread the glaze over the cookies using a knife or off-set spatula.

Allow to cool thoroughly before slicing and removing from pan. Store in an air tight container.

    Woah! I’ve never heard of toffee cookies, and these look absolutely delicious and pretty easy. I wonder how they would turn out with gluten free flour. I’ll have to give it a try! 🙂
