  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat butter over medium heat 7 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until light golden brown. Watch carefully because butter can brown and then burn quickly. Remove from heat. Pour into large bowl. Refrigerate 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours or until solid.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  • 3
    Remove bowl from refrigerator. Scrape side of bowl. Beat in brown and granulated sugars with electric mixer on medium speed 2 to 3 minutes or until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. On low speed, add flour mixture; beat until well blended (dough will be crumbly). Stir in toffee bits. Gather dough into ball.
  • 4
    Divide dough in half; shape each half into a roll, 8 inches long and 1 3/4 inches in diameter. Wrap dough logs tightly with plastic. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until very firm.
  • 5
    Heat oven to 375°F. Unwrap 1 of the dough logs; using a sharp knife, cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets, reshaping if necessary. Repeat with remaining dough log.
  • 6
    Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store covered in airtight container.

Expert Tips

  • Cookie dough rolls can be wrapped and refrigerated up to 48 hours before baking. To freeze, place wrapped cookie dough rolls in freezer, and freeze until firm. Once dough is firm, make sure ends of plastic are twisted, and place rolls in large resealable freezer bag. Freeze up to 1 month. To thaw, let dough stand 30 to 45 minutes at room temperature or until easy to cut into slices. Remove plastic; slice, and continue as directed in recipe.
  • For a nicely shaped cookie, rotate the logs every 30 minutes during refrigeration or freezing until firm so dough remains rounded.
  • Beurre noisette is the French term for “browned butter,” referring to butter that becomes light hazelnut in color during cooking. The wonderful, unforgettable, one-of-kind flavor has no equal or substitution.
