    Default Almond Toffee Shortbread Cookies

    Almond Toffee Shortbread Cookies


    Recipe Description
    I was trying to figure out what I was going to do with my bag of Hershey Chipits English Toffee Bits and I created this recipe today, and Oh My God are they good. I had to slap DH's hand away or I'd have none left for my cookie trays!These will only get better and buttery as all shortbread does.
    Preparation Steps:
    Preheat oven to 300 Degrees.
    Line 15" X 10" cookie sheet with parchment paper
    Level of Difficulty:
    easy
    Time Needed:
    45 min
    Ingredients:
    1 lb. Unsalted butter softened
    1 cup Brown Sugar
    1 tsp. Vanilla
    4 cups Flour
    1 cup Ground Almonds
    1 bag Butterscotch Baking Chipits
    1 bag Hershey Chipits English Toffee Bits(reserve 1/4 cup)
    Serves:
    80
    Directions:
    Cream butter and sugar.
    Add vanilla.
    Add flour and almonds
    Stir in baking chips and toffee bits.
    Mixture will be crumbly, press into cookie sheet lined with parchment.
    Sprinkle remaining toffee bits on top, lightly pressing in.
    Bake for 35 to 40 min until just starting to turn golden around edges.
    Cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes.
    Slice into squares.
    Store in airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but don't the heath bits have chocolate on them? The toffee bits I used are just toffee no chocolate. I'm sure the cookies would be good though, you'd just have to call the "Chocolate Toffee Almond Shortbread", LOL!

    I'm not sure if they're just a Canadian product, I know we also have a candy bar here that comes in a red tartan cardboard box called "MacKintosh", it's just toffee thats hard but starts to melt in your mouth and gets chewy, if you guys have something like that you could break it into "bits".

    I might have got the Heath bits confused with the Skor bits, I had been on the Hershey Chipits web site looking for a recipe for these "bits" but nothing, other than the "Toffee Blondies", sounded good enough to make, so neccessity being the mother of invention the "Toffee Almond Shortbread" was born.
