Heath Bar Cookies
Adapted from: SimplyRecipes.com

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups coarsely chopped Heath, Skor or chocolate covered toffee bars

Preheat oven to 350.

Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside. In your stand mixer (or with a hand mixer) cream together softened butter, sugar and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. Slowly mix in flour mixture into butter mixture until well combined. Then fold in chopped Heath candy bars. Cookie dough should be chilled for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.

Scoop 2 tablespoons of cookie dough, gently form into a ball and place on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Dough balls should be placed about 3 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, checking after about 8 minutes for browned edges. Once the edges are beginning to brown remove from oven and allow to rest for 2-3 minutes on cookie sheet. Then allow to cool on a cookie sheet (if you can make it that long). And enjoy!
