Almond Toffee [Heaven] Cookies



One night a few weeks ago I baked up my cookies for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I knew I wanted to make one of my favorite recipes and immediately thought of these Almond Toffee Cookies.

Crispy, chewy, and chock-full of almond and toffee bits, these are bound to be a hit with any cookie lover. My mom even proclaimed them the "best cookies i've ever had" and trust me, she and I know our cookies.

Enjoy!
