Cookies, cookies, cookies! Although I have had limited time to bake this year I was able to make two new cookie recipes in addition to the Italian Ricotta Cookies from last week.
First up are these almond toffee sandies. These first appeared I think in Taste of Home. I am pretty sure anything in that magazine ends up a winner. These cookies are no exception. They are chewy and packed full of almond and toffee flavor.
The recipe makes a ton. Kind of good thing in this case since we ate way too many and had plans to give some away as gifts. Cookies make for happy neighbors don't you think? Well we had plenty both for us and for all of our neighbors.
You know the cookies that you make each and every year at Christmas time because they are just so good. Well these almond toffee sandies just got moved on that list.
