A cookie a day keeps the doctor away...

These cookies are a triple threat. Don't worry, no one will get hurt, unless you eat all the cookies. Then you might have a problem. These cookies are chewy on the inside with just the right amount of tiny crunch on the edges. Born out of my love for cookies in general, these little babies unite 3 nations: Chocolate chip, Peanut Butter, and Toffee. All the ingredients get along well together, no one stands out too much. So if you are in the mood to try a new tasty treat, here's your girl.

Chewy Toffee Chocolate Chip Peanut butter Triple Cookies Recipe:
(2 dozen)

You will need:
1 stick of room temp butter
1/4 cup peanut butter (1st threat)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg (room temp you can always put it in a warm cup of water in the shell of course!)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup toffee bits (you can find in baking aisle by chocolate chips) (2nd threat)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (triple threat!)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugars and mix for a few minutes. Add vanilla until mixed in, then egg until nicely incorporated.
3. Mix together dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking soda. Now slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well. Add the toffee bits and chocolate chips.
4. Drop tablespoon fulls of cookie dough onto your cookie sheet spaced out. If you have trouble with sticking try parchment paper. Bake about 8-11 mins. Cookies will be slightly turning light golden on the outside edges and cracking throughout the tops when they are done. They may seem a bit undone in the middle, but once they set for a couple mins to cool, they will be ready. Transfer cookies to wax paper of mat to cool.
5. Eat!
