Christmas Cookies



This cookie recipe is from my daughter Katie's best friend Anna. Katie and Anna are like porkchops and applesauce. Good seperate, but even better together. These make great Christmas cookies.




Anna's Toffee Cookies:
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

16 oz bag of toffee bits

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix flour, salt and baking soda in a seperate bowl. Cream softened butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix in 1 egg at a time to butter-sugar mixture. Slowly mix in flour mixture until well-blended. Add toffee bits to mixture and mix well. Spoon drops of mixture onto cookie sheet about 1 inch apart from each other. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
* If you like to tamper with such a perfect recipe, but I don't recommend it, Anna's cookies are good with some chocolate chips and a dash of almond extract.
