Toffee Cookies is basically a regular cookie but flavoured with toffee ofcourse; tastes just like our Indian chikki.
Toffee Cookies as the name suggests is a toffee flavoured cookie that is light, crispy and chewy in the centre. However if you bake for a minute longer you would definitely get a completely crisp cookie.
Its December and officially a cookie month..Yahoooo.. You might have guessed by now how much I love baking cookies..

Coming to the flavours of these Toffee Cookies..
Well these are definitely light as we had creamed the butter and sugar really well.
The Toffee Cookies are crispy and chewy at the same time. If you do not prefer chewy centred cookie then definitely bake them for a minute longer.
What we are looking for a is a golden brown colour around the edges and slightly pale colour in the centre.
My family really enjoyed the praline flavour. The caramel coated almonds give in such a nice texture to these Toffee Cookies that I was reminded of having the chikkis from childhood days.
These Toffee Cookies are an essential Christmas cookies I must say..
Toffee Cookies - Christmas special
- 100 gms Granulated Sugar
- 25 gms Water
- 25 gms Sliced Almonds
For Cookie Dough
- 95 gms Butter
- 95 gms Caster Sugar
- 2 gms Vanilla
- 20 gms Curd
- 100 gms Flour
- Start by preparing the praline. Keep a baking tray lined with aluminium foil ready. Also keep the sliced almonds ready or nearby.
- Now in a saucepan combine together the sugar and water and bring to a rolling boil and then take it to a caramel stage without burning the sugar.
- Once it reaches the caramel stage quickly add the almonds; give a stir and then pour it onto the aluminium foil. Spread it out using a spatula and allow it to cool completely.
- Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla using a hand mixer until the butter is light, airy and creamy about 10 to 15 mins.
- Then add in the curd in two stages. Add half of it; mix using the blender, scrape the bowl and then add the remaining curd. Repeat.
- Once curd is mixed through add in the flour, again in two stages. Mix, scrape and add the remaining flour. Blend until creamy once again.
- Meanwhile, using a mortal pestle, grind the praline until you have some small and some big bits of praline. Add this crushed praline to our cookie dough and combine to get a smooth batter.
- Transfer the cookie batter to a piping bag with round nozzle and pipe a portion of it onto the baking tray lined with parchment paper.
- Using your hands spread it out a little bit and give a round shape. (Refer video for the same).
- Then bake in the preheated oven of 180°C for 8 to 10 mins. Allow it to cool completely and transfer to an air tight container.
1. If you do not have a piping bag no worries you can spoon the batter out using a regular spoon because as it is we are going to shape it using our hands.
2. Since we have creamed the butter and sugar for this Toffee Cookies; a lot of air has been incorporated into it due to which you need to leave ample space between each piped out cookie batter to allow room for the sugar to flow, spread and attain a shape while baking.
3. Even after allowing space if the cookies mix into each other after baking. Then as soon as it is out of the oven and still warm; take a knife and separate it out also give it a round shape if some of the Toffee Cookies baked out of shape.
I will see you soon with another recipe
