Now, as we move forward with preparing these English Toffee Cookies, let’s start with what we know to be the most crucial and laborious step; measuring out the necessary ingredients according to the list. Once you have everything evenly measured out, let’s get started!

STEP 1: Preheat your oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F. This temperature ensures that your cookies are baked through while retaining its aromatic flavors.

STEP 2: Combine sugars and butter

In a large mixing bowl, cream together ¾ cup unsalted butter (softened) with ½ cup granulated sugar and 1 cup of light brown sugar. Beat until well combined.

STEP 3: Add eggs and vanilla extract

Now, add 1 egg and 1 egg yolk. Mix until everything is well blended, then mix in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

STEP 4: Incorporate flour mixture

Sift together 2 cups + 3/4 cup purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, and a pinch of salt in another bowl. Slowly combine the flour mixture with the sugar-butter mixture, making sure that the batter is evenly blended.

STEP 5: Add crunch bits

Gently fold in your chosen crunch bits – whether it’s crunchy toffee bits, or if you want to kick it up a notch by adding some pecans for added flavor or a splash of extra chocolatey goodness with some chocolate chips.

STEP 6 :Roll into balls and bake

Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll into easy drop balls or use an ice-cream scoop on your dough mixing bowl to make easy round shapes of perfectly-sized portions. Place them evenly apart from each other throughout the two pans as they will grow.

Then, place them into the preheated oven for 10-14 minutes, or until the edges turn lightly golden-brown in color.

STEP 7: Cool and decorate

Transfer your cookies on a wire rack to cool completely. Use this time to admire how each cookie uniquely has its crispy exterior and chewy center. Serve, enjoy, and praise yourself for making one of the best butter toffee cookies out there!

– Pecans: If you’re not a fan of pecans, feel free to swap them out for walnuts or almonds.

– Chocolate Chips: Want to switch things up? Try using butterscotch or white chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet ones.

– Sugar: Instead of using granulated sugar in the recipe, you can substitute coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup for a slightly different taste.


– Toffee Pecan Cookies: To give these cookies even more of a toffee flavor, swap out the chocolate chips for chopped toffee bars and add extra chopped pecans.

– Crunch Cookies: Add some crunchiness by mixing in some crushed heath bar pieces into the dough for a delectable bite.

– Brown Butter Toffee Cookies: Brown the butter before mixing it into the dough which will add a nutty and caramelized undertone to your cookie.

When it comes to serving these English toffee cookies, a good old-fashioned glass of milk is a classic pairing that will never disappoint.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can also serve these cookies with a cup of hot tea, coffee or warm spiced cider on a chilly evening. The subtle sweetness from the toffee bits will help balance the floral or strong flavors of your preferred beverage. In addition, the chewiness and softness of the cookies match well with any warm or comforting drink you wish to have.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

As a British chef, I understand the importance of having baked goods on hand to serve at a moment’s notice. That is why I have designed this English Toffee Cookies recipe to be made ahead and stored easily.

If you plan to make the cookies ahead of time, you can store the dough in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours before baking. Once baked, these cookies can last for up to one week in an airtight container at room temperature. However, I recommend letting them come to room temperature before serving to ensure they maintain their chewy texture.

If you want to keep these cookies fresh for longer, you can also store them in the freezer for up to two months. Simply place them in an airtight container or freezer bag and thaw them at room temperature when you are ready to enjoy them.

To reheat these cookies, simply place them in the oven at 350°F for a few minutes until they are warmed through. This will help restore their freshly baked taste and texture.

Finally, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to try something new with this recipe, consider adding some butterscotch chips, pecans or chocolate chips. These additions will take these already delicious cookies to another level that would crunch in every bite!

Tips for Perfect Results

To perfect this English Toffee Cookies recipe, there are a few tips and tricks that you should keep in mind. These will help you get the most delicious results and impress your guests without much difficulty.

Firstly, make sure that your butter is at room temperature before starting the recipe. It makes mixing the ingredients together a lot easier and helps create that blend of flavors that’ll have everyone wanting more.

Secondly, don’t substitute brown butter with regular melted butter as it is the key ingredient in this recipe. You can easily make browned butter by heating unsalted butter on medium heat until it melts and turns golden brown, giving it a rich nutty taste.

Thirdly, don’t skip the toffee bits as they give the cookies their chewy texture and toffee flavor. You can substitute them with Heath bars or toffee bars if you cannot find them at your local store.

Fourthly, refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes before baking allows it to hold its shape better and spread out evenly during baking.

Fifthly, instead of using regular chocolate chips, go for darker ones or butterscotch chips for a richer taste. Pecans can also be added to provide some crunch to every bite.

Lastly, once you remove the cookies from the oven, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. This prevents them from breaking apart and helps maintain their shape.

By following these steps and tips, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to create decadent Brown Butter Toffee Cookies that’ll keep people coming back for another bite!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this English Toffee Cookies recipe is the perfect treat for any occasion. The combination of pecans, chocolate chips, and toffee bits provides a satisfying crunch in every bite, while the browned butter adds a rich and buttery flavor.
