Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

Ok so a couple of things to keep in mind as you dive into this food adventure with us.  I'll probably start most of my posts with, "Ok so...". I don't know why I do it, I just do so I hope it isn't too annoying! Second, I like to write the same way that I talk.  I get overly excited, using lots of these, "!!!" over things that most people deem ordinary.  Like these cookies for instance-YUMMY!!!!  I found this recipe on www.thepioneerwoman.com (which if you type  tasty kitchen into your google search it will bring you to the same place.) I made them thinking that they are for sure going to be overkill sweet--I mean sugar (white and brown) coconut, AND toffee bits?!? But I'm happy to say that these little guys are treasures! They are crispy and chewy and have about 3 depths of taste (yes three--trust me!) Also, for those of you on a diet, do yourself a favor and don't make them because they are ADDICTING! For this particular post I don't have the pictures for the prep work, only the ending result. Ok, Ok, I wasn't planning on putting them on here so I didn't bother taking pictures during prep..until I tasted them and knew they had to be a part of this blog! So here you are. Enjoy!

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

1 1/2 cups Flour
1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar, packed
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Butter, softened
2 Eggs
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
3 cups Rolled Oats
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup shredded Coconut
1 1/4 cups Toffee bits
1 cup Pecans, chooped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a separate bowl sift dry ingredients. In your mixer bowl mix butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until they are well blended. Add Vanilla and mix well.  Gradually add dry ingredients.  With a wooden spoon mix oats, Rice Krispies, coconut, toffee, and pecans. 

Drop about 2 teaspoons on ungreased cookies sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.  

BUT, don't say I didn't warn you!!

I made these and they tasted great, so thanks! One question - is it really 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract? That seems like a lot to me.
