'Forget Your Bikini Body' Cookies


I don't often try out new cookie recipes unless it is the holiday baking season, as I have found the ones my family likes and generally stick to the basics.  But, times are a changing.

Last week I asked my Facebook followers for good cookie recipes, as I needed to bring some to my husband's work function over this past weekend.  I didn't want regular old chocolate chip.  Boring.  Seventeen entries later, I decided on a version of Toffee Malted Cookies.  You can find the original recipe here.

But, in true form, I changed them up a little.  I'm not a huge fan of malted milk balls, and I was just imagining someone chopping down on one and breaking a crown at the open house.  So, here is my version.  These are quite possibly one of the greatest cookies of all time.  No kidding.


'Forget Your Bikini Body' Cookies (makes 3 dozen)
1 c. butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 1/4 c. flour
1 c. oats
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. chocolate covered toffee bits
1 c. dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together butter, cream cheese and sugars.  Add eggs, one at a time to combine.  Stir in vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, baking soda, salt and gradually add to mixture.  Dough will be very thick and stiff.  Fold in toffee bits and dark chocolate chips.

Place large spoonfuls on a greased baking sheet, 12 to a sheet.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or just until golden around the edges.

I kept four of these for us and the rest the husband took to work.  I have yet to receive back my Tupperware container or any cookies, so I'm guessing they were a hit.  In my opinion, you need to make these for your next function.  You will not be disappointed.
