Salted Toffee Cookies


Salted Toffee Cookies
2 sticks of butter 
3/4 c white sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of baking powder
pinch of salt
1 pkg toffee bits
3-4 tbsp course sea salt flakes for sprinkling each cookie
1. Bring eggs & butter to room temperature.

2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, & salt.

3. Whisk together the softened butter & sugars until they are smooth and fluffy. Be sure to whisk until the sugars are all the way or mostly dissolved into the butter.

4. Add vanilla & mix well.

5. Whisk in the eggs one at a time. Slowly add dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt) into wet ingredients (butter, sugars, vanilla, eggs).

6. Add toffee pieces into dough.

At this point I always cool my cookie dough for over an hour. I like the way they maintain shape this way.

7. With parchment paper on the cookie sheet, scoop even balls of dough onto the sheet.

8. Top with a pinch of sea salt, bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes.

DO NOT OVER BAKE, keep them soft and chewy.

I dare you to each just ONE!

Thank you cookie package & BabyBoyBakery for similar versions of this recipe!

First Day of School x 2!

Grado QUATRO!!
It is beyond crazy to think we have a 4th Grader in the house... who speaks Spanish!
It's actually all kinds of wonderful.

And now, we officially have a Kindergarten Munchkin too!

Time is such a necessary evil isn't it.

I am very very VERY behind on blogging but I've promised myself to offer more energy to my little space.

First day of school photos care of Mommy... because I never get bored making them say CHEEEEEESE!

3 Egg Cake - A family tradition

This is another Miller Family favorite.  We all still make this often.
From time to time the icing shifts to something different but we ALWAYS come back to caramel.

This was without a doubt my favorite cake my Mom always made our birthday cakes with.
Still is!
The recipe is old school, moist, heavy and delicious.  SO GOOD!  All of the ingredients are every day type items.

3 Egg Cake

3/4 c butter
1 1/2 c white sugar
3 well beaten eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 c flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c milk

Cream butter & sugar.
Blend in eggs.
Add vanilla.
Slowly alternate milk with dry ingredients.

Bake at 325 for 35 mins.  If you use muffins, bake for 15 mins.

Carmel Icing

1 c brown sugar
2 tbsp butter
1/3 c cream

Bring to a light boil.  Set aside and let cool.
Once cool, add icing sugar until the consistency is spreadable.
Top your cake/muffins.
