This is another wonderful cookie that is made with hard boiled eggs. We loved the chocolate chip cookies so much that we had to give the oatmeal cookies a try. HAD TO! They were truly amazing! I just can’t get over how good both these cookies are. Chicken Legs has proclaimed the hard boiled egg cookies his all-time favorites and the best cookies I’ve ever made. That says a lot coming from the Cookie Monster!
The original recipe comes from Katrina over at Baking and Boys. I only made a few slight changes – added the toffee and mixed the oatmeal in by hand instead of pulsing it in the food processor. Next time, and there will be a next time, I am going to add almonds and almond extract – that might result in my all-time favorite cookie.
4 oz cold unsalted butter (1 stick)
1 cup flour
½ cup quick oats

In bowl of food processor, pulse flour and butter until mealy. Add sugars, honey, salt, soda, cinnamon and vanilla. Pulse again until mealy. Add the egg and pulse until combined. Remove to a medium size bowl and work in the oatmeal and toffee bits with spoon.
Using a medium cookie scoop (2 Tbsp_, scoop dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake about 13-15 minutes. Do not overbake.
