Holiday Cookies - German Chocolate Toffee Cookies

This year I tried out some new cookie recipes.  I've found a lot of great ideas on Pinterest lately, and was very excited to try this new one out - German Chocolate Toffee Cookies.  Here's the recipe I adapted from 'Taste of Home':

German Chocolate Toffee Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2-1/2 cups Sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 ounces German sweet chocolate, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 cups Heath Toffee Bits
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped Pecans
In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in chocolate. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in water and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in Heath toffee bits and pecans.

 Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 13 dozen.
