12 Cookies of Christmas Cookie #5 :Sparkling Toffee Butter Cookies

I am telling you right now before you go any further, these are addicting, and rich and buttery and so pretty and festive to look at. So if you are not looking for something like that, please move on to someone else, but if they sound good to you then pull up and read all about these sparkly little gems. I originally found this recipe on Recipe Girl, then my sister Donna made them here. It has come full circle, I have made them numerous times and they are fantastic. So easy to make and they just make you happy just looking at them.




Sparkling Toffee Butter Cookies





1 cup sugar

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup toffee bits, I used milk chocolate toffee bits

sugar





Directions:



Preheat oven to 350.

Put some sugar in a bowl and set aside for later.

Combine butter,1 cup sugar,egg and vanilla in a large bowl.



Beat at medium speed,scraping down the sides often, until creamy. Add flour,baking powder and baking soda. Reduce speed to low. Beat until well mixed. Stir toffee bits in by hand.




Should look something like this:





Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll into sugar you have set aside.



Place 2 inches apart on parchmant lined baking sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes. I take mine out at 10 and they are perfect. DO NOT OVERBAKE!!!! Sprinkle with some more sugar while they are still warm. Let cool a minute or two before removing to cooling rack.



See that sparkle. This makes about 36 cookies. Store in airtight container.




I am warning you, these are rich and buttery and oh so good. They will add some shine to any holiday tray.



Happy Cookie Making!!!!




Let's see what the other girls are up to, shall we:
