Almond Toffee Oatmeal Cookies


These cookies are the BOMB! I made these for my Christmas cookie platter this year and it was everyone's new favorite cookie. The toffee and almond flavor is the star of this cookie. I forget that this is an oatmeal cookie when I am eating it. I am glad I gave so many of these away. I could have eaten all these cookies myself. The toffee melted all through the cookie making them irresistible!

  1. These sound wicked good. And you know what would be better? Take 1 or 2 leftover cookies and crumble them over vanilla ice cream. I might have to make a batch of these, just to try that.
