The Copycat Chef: Toffee Macadamia Nut Cookies

This recipe came about after I ate a particularly memorable cookie made with toffee chips and macadamia nuts a long time ago at City Bakery, where they have the most amazing chocolate chip cookies. The recipe is easy – it’s basically a riff on the classic Nestle Tollhouse recipe, which you can alter to include all kinds of things instead of just chocolate chips. The hardest part is finding the key ingredient, Skor bars, crazy popular in the ’80s but now limited to just a few drugstores. I found some at CVS.

I mix the butter and sugar together by hand because I dislike the cakey texture of cookies made with a standing mixer, which tends to whip too much air into the batter. If you must use an electric mixer, mix the ingredients until just combined.
