Make Ahead RecipeYes
- 2/3 cup (5 ounces) unsalted butter, room temperature
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 cup finely ground oatmeal
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- ½ cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
- 15 to 20 soft chocolate-covered toffee candies or ½ cup caramel bits
- Sea salt, optional
In the bowl of a mixer, combine the butter and brown sugar. Mix in the vanilla extract, egg and milk until smooth.
Add the oatmeal, flour, baking soda and salt, mixing until smooth.
Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts until evenly combined. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill for 2 hours, until the dough hardens.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
To make each cookie, roll a tablespoon of dough into a 1-inch round and flatten onto the baking sheet. Place a chocolate-covered toffee or a few caramel bits on top and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. Roll another tablespoon of dough into a round, flatten and place on top of the first one, making a sandwich with a chocolate toffee filling. Pinch the edges together. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes until golden. Cool to room temperature before serving. May be stored in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 1 week.
