These Toffee Shortbread Cookies (slice and bake) are soft and chewy with a winning combination of chocolate and toffee. 


1 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 and 2/3 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

chocolate chips

Skor toffee bits


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until light and fluffy.  You can use an electric mixer to do this or mix by hand with a wooden spoon.
  2. Beat in egg and vanilla until well-combined.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. 
  4. Gradually add to butter mixture in two additions. Mix just until a soft dough forms.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips and Skor Toffee Bits.
  6. Shape dough and roll by hand into a 7-inch long log and wrap in plastic wrap. The roll will be about 3 inches tall. 
  7. Place in the refrigerator side by side so the logs do not flatten. Refrigerate for 1 and 1/2 hours.
  8. Working with 1 log of dough at a time (leave the others in the refrigerator), use a sharp knife to cut into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

  9. Bake, one sheet at a time in 375°F oven for 11-13 minutes. The cookies will be golden and the edges lightly browned, with the middled just a little soft when you take them out of the oven. 

  10. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack. Enjoy!
