It’s that time of year again!
Dust off your aprons, go grab a deal on flour and sugar (they’re on sale everywhere this time of year) and preheat the oven.
We’re going to bake some cookies!
We’ve got some cute and delicious Christmas Cookie recipes to share with you.
Christmas Cookie Recipe Day 10:
Every year my Aunt Kathy would make Christmas Toffee…it took her and Uncle Mark all day to make it…but the melt in your mouth taste is second only to something we will experience once we get to Heaven.
This recipe is a little quicker and a LOT easier (no temperature monitoring). Enjoy!

- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup butter, melted

- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 8 oz chocolate, chopped (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
- 1/2 cup nuts (optional)

- Press mixture into prepared 9 x 13 glass baking dish, using the bottom of a glass or measuring cup to tamp down the crust.
