Mopey Monday

Monday, September 29, 2008

Don't know if it's all the cloudy weather, the extremely busy weekend and lack of sleep, or just a case of the blahs, but it's been a Mopey Monday. So, when I mope, I generally reach for cookies to cheer me up. I know, I know, not the healthiest habit. My defense is that I gave up all of my vices practically the moment I became pregnant for the first time, and I reserve the right to indulge in the glorious combination of butter, sugar and flour when I see fit.
So, in honor of this "Mopey Monday" I'm sharing one of my favorite cookie recipes with you. Savoring one of these babies is sure to put a smile on your face. Sorry, I can't promise that it won't also put a dimple on your rear ;P

1 cup butter (the real skimping);
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 8 oz package milk chocolate toffee bits

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking soda and salt. Beat until well mixed. Stir in toffee bits by hand.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets (I use non stick). Bake 10 to 12 minutes (check at 9 minutes for non stick) or until lightly browned at edges. Cool 1 minute, remove from cookie sheets. Enjoy...mmmmmmmm.
