O Henry Chocolate Chip Cookies



1 cup softened butter

¾ cup white sugar

¾ cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

2 ¼ cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 cup coarsely chopped O Henry Bar (chop frozen or this will get messy)

1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375F.  Mix butter, both sugars and egg.  Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, then keep stirring as you add in your nuts, chocolate chips and O Henry Bar (this is my secret – shh don’t tell anyone).  The dough is going to be very stiff!  Drop by teaspoonful about 2 inches or roll into about 1 inch balls and press down with a fork and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. (I use silicone liner sheet – I get a more polished product). Bake about 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown.


Variation:  In place of the O Henry Bar, add in ½ cup of walnuts or pecans and ½ cup Skor Toffee Bits or your favourite candy bar.
