Josh actually requested shortbread cookies, which was a huge shocker. He always asks for chocolate chip cookies, no matter what the occasion! I decided to kick his shortbread cookies up a notch by adding toffee.

  1. These look delicious! We love toffee in our house. I think I’ll have to add these to the baking list this weekend!
    Thanks for the information about the Great American Milk Drive.

  2. I made these today for my cookie party and they turned out extremely crumbly. Are you sure it’s only 1 cup butter?

  3. These were amazing! I brought them to my brother’s house and everyone loved them! I am definitely making them for all of my family functions.

  4. Super delicious cookies! So simple to make and pretty as well. Thank you for your continuously amazing cookies recipes. I and my work group thank you 🙂

  5. These look so delicious and I’d like to make them for Christmas cookie plates this year.  Do you think they would freeze well?

  6. 5 stars
    Tastes like a Skor chocolate bar. Absolutely fabulous. The only thing I’ll change the next time is that I’ll roll the dough into logs, refrigerate, slice and bake. Found the dough tough to roll out.
