“My favorite part was when my grandfather and I would make a special trip to Firpo’s Bakery for red and green Christmas cookies. ” ~ Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Good morning, sweet friends. Tis the season to be baking, “Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.” So, as promised, here is a favorite recipe for the week. All the recipes you will receive are special in our home and are tried and true. This delicious treat is one of my most favorites and is marvelous with a cup of tea or coffee.
English Butter Toffee Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 and 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup English Toffee Bits, (plain – not chocolate covered)
Heat oven to 350. Combine sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping the bowl often, until mixture is creamy. Add flour, baking powder, and baking soda, reduce speed to low. Beat until well mixed. Stir in toffee bits by hand.
