Crunch Time cookies

Lately, I have been reading a book by Diane Mott Davidson.  The book is about a caterer who gets herself into all kinds of trouble.  The book is peppered with recipes that the fictional caterer is making for her clients.  This is one of the recipes from the book.  If you are interested in reading it, the book is called "Crunch Time."  It is just one book in a series about the caterer Goldy Schultz.

1 c. pecans (I used almonds because that is what I had)
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1 c. butter
2 oz. cream cheese
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
2/3 . toffee bits (such as Heath toffee bits)

Toast almonds or pecans by putting them into a skillet and heating on low for 10 minutes.  Cool and chop.

Mix butter and cream cheese well.  Beat in vanilla and eggs.  Mix in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir in oatmeal, then chocolate chops, toffee bits and nuts.

Scoop by T. onto cooky sheet and bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
