How To Make Salted Vanilla Toffee Cookies

A combination of sweet and salty will welcome you in every bite of these toffee cookies with a fragrant aftertaste from the vanilla. Try this at home.

Preparation: 3 hours 35 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Cool Time: 3 days
Total: 3 days 3 hours 45 minutes



  • 1cupunsalted butter,(230g), softened to room temperature
  • ½cupgranulated sugar,100g
  • 1cupbrown sugar,(200g) packed light or dark
  • 2large eggs,at room temperature
  • 2tsppure vanilla extract
  • ½vanilla bean seeds,scraped
  • cupsall-purpose flour,(312g), spoon & leveled
  • 1tspcornstarch
  • 1tspbaking soda
  • ½tspsalt
  • cupsHeath English Toffee Bits
  • sea salt,for sprinkling


  1. In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter for 1 minute on medium speed until completely smooth and creamy.

  2. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat on medium-high speed until fluffy and light in color. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and vanilla bean seeds at high speed. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt together until combined. At low speed, slowly mix into the wet ingredients until combined.

  4. Add the toffee bits, mix on low for about 5 to 10 seconds until evenly disbursed.

  5. Cover the dough tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours and up to 3 days.

  6. Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes– if the cookie dough chilled longer than 3 hours, let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

  8. Once chilled, the dough might be slightly crumbly but will come together if you work the dough with your hands as you roll it into individual balls.

  9. Scoop and roll balls of dough, about 1 Tablespoon of dough each, into balls. Sprinkle with sea salt.

  10. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, until slightly golden brown around the edges. The baked cookies will look extremely soft in the centers when you remove them from the oven.

  11. Allow cooling for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

  12. Sprinkle with additional sea salt if desired.

Recipe Notes

  • Chilling is mandatory for this cookie dough.
  • If the cookies are too puffy, try gently pressing down on them with the back of a spoon. They will slightly deflate as you let them cool.
