Toffee Crunch Cookies

Sorry for the long lag in posting.  I just haven't baked anything new lately, mostly old favorites which doesn't make for new blog posts.  I bought a bag of Hershey Toffee Bits around Christmas and went in search of a cookie recipe to use them in.  I came across this one on All Recipes.  My official cookie tester gave them a thumbs up and said that the middle is soft and chewy with a crisp outside.  The toffee bits melt and give this cookie a rich, buttery flavor.  I took liberty with the recipe and here is my version.

TOFFEE CRUNCH COOKIES

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 bag toffee baking bits
1 cup chopped, toasted pecans 

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream butter with brown sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Mix until smooth and creamy.  Blend dry ingredients and add to wet mixture.  Fold in toffee bits and pecans.  Drop by tablespoons or cookie scoop onto cookie pan lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees until light brown.  Makes 4 dozen.
