Oh yes, I’m back again with another cookie recipe. Have I gone overboard with the cookie recipes this year?… maybe, but I couldn’t let autumn pass without sharing one more. Cookies are part of my DNA at this point so no judgment please haha.
Anywho, whilst scrolling on Pinterest recently, I stumbled across these ‘churro toffee cookies’ and they instantly caught my eye.
I absolutely loved the idea of combining toffee and the flavour of churros to create these cookies, especially as they are two of my favourite things.
BUT, I couldn’t find any toffee pieces whilst doing my weekly shop so I decided to give mine a slight twist and add fudge pieces instead and I’ve got to say – that was a damn good decision of mine.
So, I can’t take full credit for todays cookie recipe. The original baker is the incredibly talented ‘charlotteshares’, formally known as Charlotte Hancey.
I’ve followed Charlotte for a while now and she never fails to inspire me with her delicious looking bakes and these cookies were no exception to that.

How To Make The Cookies:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, line two baking trays with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 190C / 170C Fan / Gas Mark 4.
- Secondly, in a large bowl, whisk together the 360g of plain flour, 1tsp of baking powder, 2tsp of cream of tartar and 1.5tsp of cinnamon, then set to one side.
- Now, in a separate large bowl, using an electric whisk, beat together the 227g of unsalted butter with 267g of granulated sugar, until light and fluffy.
- One at a time, beating well between each addition, beat in the 2 large eggs and 2tsp of vanilla extract until combined.
- Next, slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet until a cookie dough forms.
- Mix in the 1 box of chopped clotted cream fudge until well incorporated.
- Using a 4” cookie scoop (or using your hands), scoop the cookie dough and roll into balls.
- In a shallow bowl, mix together the 67g of granulated sugar and 1tsp of ground cinnamon.
- Roll each of the balls into the sugar cinnamon mixture, making sure each cookie is completely covered.
- Place 6 cookies on each of the pre-lined baking trays and place into the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies are a very light brown around the edges.
- Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
How To Decorate The Cookies:
- When the cookies have cooled, it’s time to decorate.
- In a microwavable bowl, add 50g of broken white chocolate. Place into the microwave and in 20 second blasts, blast the chocolate until it has completely melted.
- Once melted, transfer the chocolate into a piping bag. Cut the very tip of the piping bag off and drizzle the chocolate all over the top of each cookie.
- Finally, sprinkle the 50g of fudge pieces over the cookies.
