White Chocolate Toffee Bites

Years ago, I used to make white chocolate pecan cookies for my husband. It was a long time ago, before the kids came along. He's probably already forgotten about that little treat. But, I'm going to remind him of the good ole days when I give him a plate of these White Chocolate Toffee Bites from Gooseberry Patch's Best-Ever Cookies, copyright 2011. Life is better with toffee bits!

White Chocolate Toffee Bites

2-1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. sugar
3.4-oz. pkg. instant white chocolate pudding mix
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla extract
12-oz. pkg. white chocolate chips
10-oz. pkg. toffee baking bits
1-1/2 c. chopped pecans

Sift flour and baking soda together and set aside. In a separate large bowl, blend together butter and sugars. Beat in dry pudding mix; stir until well blended. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Mix well; stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes 5 dozen.

The dry ingredients combined in a separate bowl.

Starting the batter with butter, brown and regular sugar. I mixed these together.

Next, came the dry pudding mix.

Since I was still using my mixer, I didn't beat the eggs separately. I threw them in with the vanilla and mixed well.

I added the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Cookie dough is thick!!!

Let's accessorize! First, we'll start with a nice bag of white chocolate chips.

Followed by a bag of crunchy toffee bits (my favorite part)!

We will finish with chopped pecans. They really bring the whole look together!

Yes, you will probably have to use your hands at some point to get things mixed in well.

I think this dough ball is a little bigger than it should be. So?

Beautiful memories!
