Toffee Peanut Butter Cookies

My oldest survived his first day of 2nd grade. I was worried how my youngest would do with not going to school until next year, but he was a trooper. His biggest complaint was waking up at 7 am this morning. I really don't blame him, it takes a couple of weeks for everyone in the house to re-adjust to a school schedule. It was nice to be able to sit down with a cup of coffee this morning while my youngest was playing in his bedroom. I could feel the stress of the summer melting off of me. Don't get me wrong there will be lots of homework, school events, sports etc this school year. However, there will also be the school hours where I only have one child. With two boys all I have heard this summer has been lots of noise. I had no idea how much noise a 4 and 7 year old boy can possibly make while in the same house for two months. Mommy needed a break. After my cup of coffee I spent the rest of the day cleaning up after summer. Every year after school starts I spend a day going through the house and taking things to donate. I ended up with two bags of old toys from my boy's room so I made decent progress and my house stayed nice and quiet until the bus came. To celebrate the start of the school year, I did a little baking. Today I tried a new recipe for Toffee Peanut Butter Cookies from the Hershey's website.

This recipe has10 ingredients. It takes 25 minutes of total time, 15 minutes is which is active and makes 36 cookies. I made a number of significant changes to the original recipe. First, I changed the all-purpose flour to gluten free flour. I found that I had to add slightly more gluten free flour in order for the dough to come together and not be too thin and spread during baking. I only had a half of a bag of toffee chips left, so I added the entire amount into the dough instead of following the procedure in the recipe. It made the texture of the cookie more what I was desired.

Gluten free baking can be hit or miss, but these cookies turned out well. I made a batch with regular flour also and according to my kids they were great. I slightly increased the baking time since they didn't appear fully browned at 8 minutes. This recipe would also be delicious with a combination of the toffee chips and dark chocolate chips. I love anything with dark chocolate.
