Big Heath Cookies

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.
