Relationships — or more specifically, boyfriends — are a little bit like cookies…
I don’t need a cookie. Really, I don’t. I could go an entire lifetime without ever eating another cookie.
But if there’s one right in front of me, I’m not not going to eat it. I mean, cookies are nice to have, especially a really good one.
(And even though I neither need nor want a cookie, if I already have one in my hands and it’s taken away…Well, you know where I’m going with this. I’m probably going to wail about not being able to live my life anymore without that cookie. Or something like that.)
Heath Bar Cookies
Heath Bar Cookie Ingredients
2½ cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups coarsely chopped Heath, Skor or chocolate covered toffee bars
Heath Bar Cookie Directions
Preheat oven to 350.
Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda.
Cream softened butter, sugar and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then add vanilla.
Stir in flour mixture until well combined. Fold in chopped Heath candy bars.
Chill cookie dough for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
Scoop 2 tablespoons of cookie dough, gently form into a ball shape, and place on ungreased cookie sheet, dough balls about 3 inches apart.
Bake 10-12 minutes, checking after about 8 minutes for browned edges.
By sheer coincidence, these Heath Bar Cookies were originally posted almost exactly three years ago, December 15, 2009! The photos below are the original ones I took waaay back then. We haven’t come a very long way, have we?
