Christmas Toffee Cookies
Every year my Aunt Kathy would make these delicious Christmas Toffee cookies.
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!
