Feature: Toffee Shortbread Cookies - Just 7 Ingredients

Toffee Shortbread Cookies are a unique hybrid of a traditional shortbread and molded drop cookies.

On the one hand, the recipe follows shortbread’s classic ratio of ingredients (typically one part sugar, two parts butter, and three parts white flour) to produce a rich, crumbly biscuit-like cookie texture. Can you say ahhh?

But rather than pressing the cookie dough into a pan and cutting it when it is warm, these delectable individual shortbreads are formed when you scoop dough and roll it into 1-inch balls (as in other molded cookie recipes). Miniature chocolate chips and toffee bits may ooze out a bit when you bake them. You won’t mind.

Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Bake time: 10-13 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
