On the eighth day of Homemade Christmas, I made Toffee Nut Cookies.
Do you like Toffee? Over the last five or so years, I have become a huge fan of the candy. It is really easy to make and has a small handful of easy to find ingredients. There are some recipes that call it Christmas crack and it is, it is so good! Trying out a cookie full of toffee was a no-brainer for me. I needed to try it, period.
I have tried other toffee cookies but they left me hoping that there was something better out there. Thankfully there was and these toffee nut cookies will now be part of my Christmas baking list every year. I can’t wait to make them again, I think Santa Claus needs to try them too!
