Amazing Hard Boiled Egg Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

Amazing Hard Boiled Egg Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

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.

  3. I have to admit – this sounds wierd. But it looks delicious. And since you like it so much I really want to try it! I will let you know how we like it!

  4. Yep, for some reason, with these HBE cookies, the oatmeal version is my favorite. And you just kicked it WAY up with the toffee and I can't wait to try that now–soon!
    Glad you and Legs like them so much.

  5. Thanks for trying the recipe!! I think Katrina said she liked the oatmeal version (compared to the chocolate chip version) best of all.

  6. The hard boiled egg gives the cookie a nice and light texture. They are slightly firm on the outside but pillow soft on the inside.

  7. Hard boiled egg?? In a cookie?? Thats new to me….what does it do different in the cookie? Does it react different in the batter than a regular egg?

    Just curious 🙂

  8. I've never heard of hard-boiled eggs in cookies. I agree with the first comment, wonder who thought to do that??? Ok, I believe you and I'm saving this recipe. 🙂
