"The" Cookies
from a recipe shamelessly coerced from the lovely Wendy Rayfield

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon kosher salt
12 oz. Skor English Toffee Bits, or Heath bar bits
12 oz. white chocolate chips
3 cups roughly chopped walnuts

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. In the bowl of an standing mixer fitting with a paddle attachment, cream the soft butter, the sugars, vanilla, eggs, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. With the mixer on a low-medium speed, mix in the flour, then add the toffee bits, white chocolate chips, and chopped nuts.
3. Drop the batter from a large spoon or small ice cream scoop and flatten with the heal of your hand. Allow room for spreading.
4. Bake for 10 - 12 min. until golden brown, remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before moving the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling to room temperature.
