Coconut Cashew Toffee Cookies combine some really great flavors in a thick, chewy cookie that’s anything but ordinary!
I have a running list of recipe ideas that I’ve amended and edited over many years. It’s a nice way to attempt to stay organized and a good spot to find some baking inspiration when I’m otherwise uninspired. These Coconut Cashew Toffee Cookies came to be because of that list. I have no recollection of what inspired me to add them to that list, but I’m so glad I did!
These cookies feature an interesting flavor combination for those times you want something other than the traditional cookie flavors. With coconut, cashews, and toffee bits added to a vanilla cookie, there’s no shortage of flavor plus some great crunch from all three add-ins.
I love how thick and chewy these cookies are! They’re not dainty cookies, but rather significant. As you probably know, there’s a fine line between this sort of texture and dry, crumbly cookies. Be sure you measure your ingredients correctly for the best results.
I recommend toasting the coconut for these cookies. That little bit of extra time is well worth it for the flavor it adds. And that’s not to mention that toasted coconut is just so pretty! (If you need a refresher, be sure to see my tips for how to toast coconut.) I like to toast a little extra for the tops of the cookies. That’s completely optional, but it gives them a more interesting look. Plus more coconut is always good in my book!
Toffee bits are one of my favorite add-ins, and I usually keep some in my pantry. The ones I use here are the plain ones, but they’re also available with a chocolate coating. If you’d like a little chocolate mixed into these cookies, using the chocolate toffee bits is an easy way to do that.
These Coconut Cashew Toffee Cookies are a great choice for those times you want something just a little different in the cookie baking world. The flavor combination is wonderful, and the crunch of those add-ins is a really great addition to a thick, chewy cookie. I hope you’ll give them a try!
