Pumpkin Toffee Cookies

December 27, 2018Teresa

Pumpkin Toffee Cookies are sensational. These jewels have all the delicious flavors associated with pumpkin desserts. Cinnamon, ginger, cloves and pumpkin pie spice. But they have one thing more. Heath English Toffee Bits. Oh, yeah. The toffee bakes down into the top of the cookie and melts causing an explosion of flavor. These cookies are absolutely irresistible.

Back in early December, my husband was out shopping. And as is usually the case, he found a “deal.” Pumpkin for 10 cents per can. Seriously. I told him I really didn’t need any, but…. Well, he bought ten cans of the stuff. So what am I going to do with TEN CANS OF PUMPKIN???? I used one of the cans for this recipe. I started with one of my favorite Pumpkin Cookie recipes and improvised. I added the Heath English Toffee Bits to the batter. But I also added another quarter teaspoon or so to the tops of each cookie before baking.

These cookies were really delectable. I ended up including them in our mini-Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year. Because my oldest son got married, I cut back on all Christmas baking this year. I did end up baking up trays of cookies for John’s office and for our kid’s offices. But other than that, I pretty much wimped out. Listen, a week of having four small grandkids 7 and under will wear anybody out.

Anyway, Pumpkin Toffee Cookies are terrific for fall or winter baking. While I made them for Christmas Cookies, pumpkin is available year round these days so you can make them whenever you get a hankering for them. That may be often. One bite and you’ll be hooked on these amazing cookies forever.

Beat ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth. Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add part of the Heath English Toffee Bits.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until done.

Do not be deceived by the melted toffee on top. You actually have to touch these cookies to determine doneness. The gooey texture from the melted toffee may fool you into thinking the cookies are not fully baked when they actually are.

That’s the melted toffee on top that remains gooey.

  3. Measure out 1/3 cup Heath English Toffee Bits; set aside.
  4. Combine oil, brown sugar, pumpkin, eggs, salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and pumpkin pie spice.
  5. Mix well with an electric mixer until creamy.
  6. Add the flour and the remaining amount of Heath English Toffee Bits.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Be careful not to overbake these cookies. The toffee on top melts. It will make the cookie appear to be gooey and not done. However, if you touch the cookie and it’s firm to the touch, the cookie is done—even though the melted toffee on top appears gooey.
