Are you ready for some crunchy, buttery, pecan cookies with bits of chocolate-covered toffee bits? Who wouldn't be? They're easy to make and easy to eat!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

  • 2 large egg whites

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¾ cup coarsely chopped pecans

  • ¾ cup chocolate-covered toffee bits (such as Heath®), or to taste

Directions

  1. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; whisk until well combined.

  2. Place butter and brown sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg whites and vanilla extract, and beat for 1 more minute. Gradually add flour mixture to the bowl and mix until completely combined. Fold in pecans and toffee bits until all ingredients are well incorporated.

  3. Move the bowl to the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

  5. Scoop dough into heaping tablespoon-sized balls with a spoon or cookie scoop. Place dough balls about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet and flatten just slightly with the palm of your hand.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set and lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

The toffee bits may be found in the same area of the store as bags of chocolate chips.

If you only have 1 baking sheet, return cookie dough to the refrigerator between batches and allow baking sheet to cool before making the next batch of cookies.
