These Cinnamon Toffee Cookies are what dessert dreams are made of! If you are a cinnamon lover, you’ll go crazy for these cookies that taste like a Cinnabon!
My good friend told me about a local specialty spice shop that I had to go visit. So on my husband’s last Friday off, we had a date at the cute place. 🙂 It was pretty much spice paradise! There were probably eight different varieties of cinnamon, all from around the world. We spent way too much money there, but came out with so many amazing-goods to try!
I knew I had to get home and make some Snickerdoodles, stat! So I did that and then a few days later, I got a brilliant idea to combine Cinnamon and chocolate toffee bits in one very incredible cookie!
The toffee makes them caramel-y and crunchy on the outside with a soft, chewy interior.
My kids had some friends over the other day and they kept attacking the cookie jar for these suckers! They’re SO yummy!
I’m telling you good cinnamon makes all the difference in the final baked good! I like to take these cookies and just sniff them. The aroma alone is almost enough to satisfy my cookie monster nature. Notice I said almost. 🙂
One bite will do you in! You’re going to want more and more! But you deserve it! Cookies are a very happy way to end a hard day! They’re often my reward for making it through grocery trips with a cranky toddler, dramatic homework sessions, and putting kids to bed without losing my temper. Keep the cookie supply coming!

- In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and toffee chips and mix until combined.
- Roll or scoop dough into 1 1/2" balls and place at least 2" apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake for approximately 8 minutes. Don't over bake.
