Toffee Oatmeal Cookies
Makes 2 1/2 dozen

½         cup     white sugar
1          cup     brown sugar, packed
1          cup     butter, softened
1          tsp.      vanilla
1          lg.        egg

1 ¾      cups   flour
1          tsp.      baking soda
½         tsp.      kosher salt (or ¼ tsp. table salt)

1          cup     oatmeal
1 ¼      cup     rice krispies cereal
1 1/3   cup     Heath English toffee bits (8oz. pk)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream sugars and butter until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and mix until light and fluffy.

Whisk flour, baking soda and salt to blend. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix to blend.

Stir in oatmeal, rice krispies and toffee bits.

Shape a heaping Tablespoon of dough into a mound, with a small ice cream scoop (see note above) or shape into balls with your hands. Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet; about 2” apart (I get 6 on a sheet).

Bake 8-9 min.(mine took 8 1/2 min.) and immediately slide the cookies with the parchment onto the counter to cool. *** this step keeps the cookies crisp on the outside with soft centers.
