How To Make Brown Butter Toffee Cookies

1 — Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

4 — Add sugars and mix until combined.

5 — Then, add egg, egg yolks, greek yogurt and vanilla extract.

6 — Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

7 — Stir in 1 cup of toffee pieces.

8 — Using a medium ice cream scoop, place cookies on baking sheet  and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies begin to turn golden brown.

9 — Take cookies out and immediately sprinkle with remaining toffee pieces.
