When it comes to CCCs, I'm a bit of a Goldilocks. Too cakey, not enough chocolate, too sweet, not enough salt; I could go on and on. For the better part of my adult life I've been on a chocolate chip cookie quest and I've definitely found a few to love. The classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe by the amazing Jaques Torres will also be a favorite, but sometimes a gal just doesnt have two days to wait for the dough to cure to perfection. Enter these cookies filled with just a few of my favorite things; brown butter, crispy toffee, rich dark chocolate and crunchy pretzels. The brown butter adds a ton of flavor to the dough without any downtime in the fridge. Sure, the homemade toffee may be a little over the top but IT. IS. WORTH. IT!  If you don't have time for this step, feel free to pick up a bag of store bought toffee chips. They will for sure work in a pinch! 

Oh, and I forgot the best part! Bourbon! Since I'll be making these as gifts this holiday season I was sure to add in a splash of cheer. Perhaps you can gift these with a bottle of bourbon to boot? A match made in cookie heaven!

When these bake, some of the toffee chips may create some unruly edges, but to get perfectly uniform rounds, all you need to do it run a mug or large circular cookie cutter around the edges quikly while they are still warm to work them back into shape. 

Bake a batch (or two) and spread the love with these cookies this holiday season!
