I brought home leftovers from lunch at the office today, so I didn’t have to make dinner, but I still felt like cooking something. I have really been wanting to try Peabody’s Cranberry Orange Cookies and although I didn’t have any pistachios on hand, I thought I’d give them a try. But then I mentioned it to my husband, and although he says he is not picky, he will let me know when he is not “feeling” something at that particular time. So I knew I had to hold off on the delicious looking cookies, but I still wanted to make cookies. I went to my cupboard to see what I had. I found a bag of toffee chips, and looked on the back of the package to find this recipe. It looked rather good, and Josh thought so too, so I thought I’d give it a try. The only thing I changed was to do 1/2 c butter and 1/2 c shortening instead of 1 c of butter. I learned many years ago that that is the the perfect ratio for cookies (for me at least.) That way you get the great, buttery taste, but I also like light, puffy cookies, and the shortening helps with that.

The instructions say to bake for 8 to 10 minutes, but I usually cook my cookies 1 minute under the recommended time for the perfect cookie. These were delicious!! I was going to take most of them to work with me tomorrow, but Josh begged me to keep plenty at home. I should start looking on the packages of my ingredients more often!!

    I like to bake with toffee chips, but my problem is that I’ll just eat them out of hand and by the time I get around to baking with them there’s none left!

  2. Deborah says:

    Oh, I have the same problem!! But I have that problem with everything – I never get all of the cookies made because I end up eating so much cookie dough!

  3. Deborah says:

    I just have to add that I took the majority of the leftover cookies to work today, and they were gone within 15 minutes. That says a lot, because we constantly have goodies and food in the office, and usually nothing gets completely eaten. I’m gonna have to make these more often!
