nom nom nom

so i pinned this cookie recipe like a million years ago
and i'm just now getting around to it.
i think i've done exactly none of the things i've pinned.
someday. someday i'll have lots of time and money and all
of my pinterest ambitions will come to life!

back to the cookies.
so... they're effing delicious.
i could eat a dozen a day, but i'm trying to get skinny.
so i'll just eat 3. or 4. or 7.
seriously though. go make these. now.

Salted Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies
recipe here

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened (mmmm...)
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. light brown sugar, packed (i used dark)
2 large eggs
11/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 c. ap flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
12 oz. chocolate, chopped (i used 6 oz. of chips)
1 c. toffee pieces (i used a full bag of the Heath pieces)
Fleur de sel (i'm not fancy, so i used coarse sea salt that we already had)
Preheat oven to 350 F. 
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy.  Beat in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.  Slowly add flour mixture and blend until completely incorporated.  Stir in chocolate and toffee.
Drop 2 ounces of cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or into the cups of a muffin top pan.  Sprinkle each cookie with a generous pinch of fleur de sel.  Bake until cookies are puffed and just started to brown, 13-15 minutes.  Transfer cookies to a rack to cool completely.
so unbelievably good. 
they're sweet and salty and gooey and crunchy
and perfect.
even mr. owl loves them
