So do you remember a blog that I wrote earlier this month about Christmas cookies? Well I am still in the mood for cookies and it has almost been a week since we have celebrated the sugar inducing holiday. Well, I have one more Christmas cookie recipe that I would like to share with you and that is Toffee Snickerdoodle Cookies!
You ever wonder where the name Snickerdoodle came from? I am now wondering that myself. After a lame attempt for research I found out that the Snickerdoodle origin is German! Now where the name comes from, no one seems to know. At least that is what I found out in my horrible attempt to research the history of these cookies. I know I just thre you guys a curve ball. Now, back to the cookies.
I love Snickerdoodles. Especially these Toffee Snickerdoodle Cookies. The crazy thing is that for the longest time I didn’t. Snickerdoodles were just sugar cookies rolled in even more sugar. I didn’t really appreciate the dessert for what its worth. Now, I love a good Snickerdoodle. But next to a good cookie, brownie, or cake, I love just about anything that has toffee in it. I love toffee! The buttery and sugary hard candy added to most desserts is a wonderful incentive. However, it can’t be added to just any dessert. It has to make sense. Snickerdoodles with toffee pieces makes sense, right? Well enjoy these Toffee Snickerdoodles!
