Cookies, cookies, cookies, has there ever been a treat so sweet???
When your sweet tooth acts up, give into the temptation with a Toffee Butterscotch Shortbread Cookie.
A classic cookie with a tasty twist. Buttery, golden, sweet and tender shortbread cookies with rich butterscotch chips and buttery toffee bits…….a match made in heaven.
I love shortbread cookies, but add the butterscotch and toffee
Butterscotch and toffee both have that luscious caramel essence. One smooth ( butterscotch), and the other crunchy ( toffee ).
Toffee Butterscotch Shortbread Cookies are simple to make and go perfect with a cup of steaming coffee for an afternoon treat.
I made these and sent a care package of them to my brother. When I ask him a few days later how they were he said they were awesome!
I asked him how my nephew and his girlfriend liked them, and he said …….eh! Which meant more for my brother!!!
