The big heath cookie
When I made these big heath cookies the first time, we couldn’t get enough, even my son who doesn’t eat sweets kept going back for more. The heath bits are a nice change from the chocolate chip, maybe I’ll try adding both. I have to warn you, make a double batch of the big heath cookie, they go really fast.
What you will need for the big heath cookies:
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 ½ sticks melted butter, cooled
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup heath bits
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
In a mixing bowl, mix together sugars and butter until smooth. Add egg and egg yolk, one at a time. Mix in vanilla extract. Add flour, salt, and baking soda a little at a time until completely incorporated. Fold in heath chips.
I used a ice cream scoop, so each cookie would be uniform. Once I scoped out the dough I rolled the dough in to a ball and place the ball on to the cookie sheet, then I pressed the cookie ever so slightly to flatten. I put 6 cookies per sheet. Bake cookies for 15 to 18 minutes until the edges are slightly brown.
