Christmas Cookies With Mackintosh Toffee Bits

Need to take a break from the Shopping Mall?  Tired of the pushing and shoving at Best Buy?  Thought so!  How about spending some quality time in the kitchen before friends and relatives show up.  Did you get involved with a Cookie Exchange – but need something just a “little bit” different?  How about putting that bag of Nestle Mackintosh Pieces to work…Yes – it’s THAT time of year again!  Time to get those cookie sheets out and get moving.  Santa will be arriving soon!

Make Santa Happy At Christmas

Give The Big Guy toffee bit cookies this Christmas!

This is a great recipe that I have used that can use your secret stash of Mackintosh Toffee you have squirreled away.  You just need to chop / crunch / smash / grind them into slightly smaller pieces.  And voila – you have delicious cookies with that subtle and smooth flavor of Mack Toffee.

Cookies With Toffee Bits

2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup butter or margarine, softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1-1/3 cups toffee bits (you can make the toffee pieces as small as you prefer – there is no perfect size…Hey – It’s your kitchen – you’re The Boss.)

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie sheets.
Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
Beat butter, sugars, and vanilla in a large bowl until well blended. Add eggs and beat well.
Gradually add the flour mixture and beat until well blended. Stir in your toffee bits.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 9 to 10 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool slightly.  Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.  Let cookies cool completely.

Yield: about 4 dozen cookies – which can make about 4 people in your household VERY happy!

PS: And don’t forget to save a few for Santa…
