The day she took the photos I made a batch of Oatmeal Toffee Crisps and she followed me around the kitchen – it was so much fun. I almost felt famous!
One of my favorite flavor combinations is chocolate and toffee.
Remember those Chocolate Chip and Toffee Scones – yum!
Chocolate chips and toffee bits are wonderful in cookies too! This cookie is a thin cookie that is crisp around the edges but slightly chewy in the middle – another perfect combination! I found the recipe for the Oatmeal Toffee Crisps over at Kara’s Kitchen Creations
Enjoy this fun pictorial as well as the cookies!
