I came up with these cookies as a way to use up little bits of leftover chips, nuts etc, but now I buy the ingredients just to make them. My husband calls them the "Everything but the kitchen sink cookies" The neighbor asks for these in exchange for dog sitting.
1Melt the butter in microwave safe bowl or cup. Set aside to cool slightly.
2Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and pudding mix. Pour the melted butter into your stand mixer's work bowl. Add the sugar and brown sugar and beat with the paddle attachment on medium speed for 2 minutes.
3Meanwhile, whisk together the whole egg, the egg yolk, milk and vanilla extract in a measuring cup. Reduce the mixer speed and slowly add the egg mixture. Mix until thoroughly combined, about 30 seconds
4Gradually add the dry ingredients, stopping a couple of times to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Once the flour is worked in, drop the speed to slow and add the chocolate chips, toffee pieces and nuts. Chill the dough for 1 hour.
5Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Scoop the dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake 12 - 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from the oven, cool on sheets 2-5 minutes and remove to cooling rack.
