"I played with a King Arthur flour recipe and got these crunchy buttery delights. Yum! You can use all whole wheat flour if you don't have barley flour, but the barely flour gives it a milder taste. To ensure crunchiness, be sure to bake these cookies thoroughly; they should be golden brown all over, without any hint of softness in the center. They also stay rounded and don't spread much."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.

Step 2

Beat the butter, oil sugars, vanilla, salt and instant coffee in a large bowl until smooth.

Step 3

Beat in the vinegar, egg, baking soda and baking powder until well combined.

Step 4

Stir in the flours until well combined.

Step 5

Stir in the chocolate chips, toffee bits and pecans, if desired. *The dough will appear oily.

Step 6

Scoop out 1 inch balls and place on baking sheets. They don't need to be spaced far apart because they don't spread much. *I tried flattening some but didn't like them as much.

Step 7

Bake 14-16 minutes, reversing trays half way through, until golden brown all over with no hint of softness in the center.

Step 8

Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool 5 minutes on baking sheets before transferring to racks or paper bags to cool completely.


No special items needed.

OMG . . .just took the first tray out of the oven and just had to try! Crunch, soft and buttery . . . Incredibly good! I did a couple things different . . . used AP flour and shortening instead of the butter/oil. Made for the Photo Forum Event!

Yum! We love our sweets and these are among our favorite cookies now. The toffee gives the ordinary chocolate chip cookie a real edge. We love these!

When chocolate chip cookies are made at my house they are usually put in the cookie jar and every once in awhile we will have one or two. Not the case with these yummy cookies though. We had them gone in 2 days. You might want to make a double batch of these if you want some on hand!
