Heath Bar Bits Cookies
3 sticks butter or margarine (1 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 large or 8 small heath or skor candy bars, chilled
Cream together first four ingredients. Add flour, soda and powder. Place chilled
candy bars either in blender until chopped very fine, or put in double plastic
bag and pound with hammer. (Buy the toffee chips folks, it's much easier.) Add
to creamed mixture. Line 8" square cake pan with wax paper and press cookie
dough into pan.
Cool a minimum of 2 hours (preferable overnight). Cut into 3 logs. Keep uncut
logs and uncut portions of logs wrapped in wax paper or saran and keep
refrigerated until ready to slice.
Slice each cookie very thin
(approximately 1/8 "). Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 350° for 5-8 minutes, only
until light brown.
Variations: You cab use equal ounces of toffee chips and one or two 8 oz
chocolate bars shaved. Or If you can find them, chocolate covered toffee chips.
