A Special Cookie Recipe

“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

Ingredients:

1 and 1/2 sticks of butter, softened

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.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls.  Roll in granulated sugar.  Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Flatten each with the bottom of a glass to – 1 and 1/2 inch circles.

Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.  Sprinkle with sugar while warm.  Cool completely on wire racks.

 

Have a beautiful day and weekend.  Happy Baking! 

 

 

Au Revoir,

Sandra

Now, Sandra, this looks a most delicious cookie recipe. Thanks so much for sharing some of your favourites with us. It’s almost like having tea and cookies with you in person. I’ve copied out the recipe and look forward to trying it out.

What a pretty counted cross-stitch pillow ornament.
