White Lace Inn Oatmeal Chocolate Toffee Cookies

White Lace Inn Oatmeal Chocolate Toffee Cookies
Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter (four sticks, 1 pound)
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 6 1/2 cups Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Oatmeal (originally 7 cups)
  • 1 1/2 eleven ounce bags milk chocolate chips (just estimate, about 16 to 17 ounces) or use half milk and half semi-sweet. (original recipe called for one 7 ounce Hershey Milk Chocolate Candy Bar, chopped into large pieces)
  • 1 8 ounce bag of Heath Toffee Bits, preferably the kind with chocolate (originally 6 Heath Candy Bars, chopped)
  • I use no nuts (originally 1 cup nuts)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. For easiest removal of cookies, use a parchment lined sheet.

In a very large bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Set aside.

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda. Fold this into butter mixture.

Add to this the oatmeal and mix, then the chocolate chips, Heath bits and nuts (if using nuts) and mix together. This completely fills my stand mixer bowl. I’ll generally work in the oatmeal then stir in the chips and Heath bits by hand.

Make large cookies (I use 1/3 cup scoop and leave plenty of space, about six cookies to a tray) and bake in a preheated 375° oven for 8-10 minutes (note: it is best to under bake a little). Remove from oven when the edges have started to brown, then let the cookies sit on the hot sheet for a few minutes to firm up.

Notes:

  • Dough may be refrigerated, but cookies are really at their best if made right after mixing.
  • Dough may be frozen. Scoop and form balls of dough, place on a parchment-lined sheet and freeze. Then remove to a ziploc bag.
  • If refrigerated or frozen, you may wish to slightly squish the cookies partway through the baking. It’s up to you. Squishing them will make them less round but also less “cake=like.”
