Recipe: Brown Sugar Toffee Cookies

Mrs. Fields Secrets Brown Sugar Toffee Cookies

Brown Sugar Toffee Cookies

2 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup crushed toffee bits
1/2 cup coarse brown sugar for rolling

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or baking sheets. In a mixing bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together: flour, baking soda, cornstarch, salt and cinnamon. In another mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until creamy, about two minutes. Add egg and vanilla and mix until well combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients, followed by the toffee bits. Scoop generous tablespoon balls of dough and roll into a ball, then roll in the coarse sugar. Place 12 cookies per sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until tops are crackled. Remove and cool for a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

A Sweet Story

It started with a caring teacher, Ms. Parker, who always refers to the students in her class as “smart cookies.” For Teacher Appreciation Week, each class decorated a door for their teacher. Ms. Parker’s class had no trouble at all coming up with an idea for their door.

That’s Aly Starbuck there. She’s one of the smart cookies.

Let’s zoom in for the close up, shall we?

So adorable!

We caught wind of this story and it thrilled us because we love teachers. And we love smart little creative cookies who do nice things for their teachers. So, we decided to surprise all of them with some gourmet goodies. Rumor has it that it took three students to carry this basket of cookies and brownies down the hall to the classroom.

But wait, the story gets sweeter. Much to our delight, we got our own surprise a few days later–hand-written cards and pictures from Ms. Parker’s class, thanking us for the surprise. It brightened the entire office!

Kindness begets kindness begets kindness begets kindness. It’s quite simple, isn’t it?

A big Thank You to Ms. Parker and her entire first grade class of smart cookies at Viewmont Elementary School! Keep up the good work.
