Easy Toffee Cookies

Hello and Tis the season for cookie swaps, cookie gifting, and signing up to bring cookies for holiday parties! I’m Kath from Penney Lane and I have a go-to cookie I make for almost all of these occasions. I typically make the Caramel Kiss Cookies  because they are easy and delicious and are always a hit. But I feel like I’m in a bit of a cookie rut, if you will, so I wanted to find another great cookie recipe to shake up the holiday season!

So here is my Easy Toffee Cookies recipe!

I found a Pecan Slice Cookie recipe in Taste of Home and changed it up a bit. I’m a sucker for toffee, especially with the “buttery melt in your mouth” kind of toffee. So, I thought my holiday cookie baking absolutely needs these toffee cookies!

These cookies remind me of making cookies with my mom as a kid. We made a lot of slice and bake cookies. They are so good- chewy and buttery and full of toffee goodness. With the seasons coming near, I hope you enjoy your delicious treats, and remember that a simply delicious cookie recipe can go a long way and bring smiles to those faces at your holiday parties!
