Back of the pantry cookies!

Maybe you’ve got some extra time on lunch and want some nice, warm cookies… but your pantry is a little bare.



2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 cup softened butter

1 ½ cups white sugar

2 large eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract (optional, but really good!)

1 tablespoon instant espresso (optional)

1 cup chocolate chips, toffee chips, and/or mini marshmallows.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, and the optional (but definitely great) vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix your flour, baking soda, salt, and instant espresso.
  5. Combine both bowls of ingredients until just combined.
  6. Then, stir in either the chocolate chips, toffee chips, or mini marshmallows (or all of them).

*my favorite combo is toffee and marshmallows

  1. Optionally, chill the dough for thirty minutes.
  2. Using a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, scoop your cookies onto a lined cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes and allow to cool fully before enjoying!
