Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies

Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies are so delicious and easy to make! 

These Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies are perfect for a cookie exchange party or for  DIY Christmas gifts for your friends and family. Of course, baking up a batch for yourself is a must. 

Why Cookies Are So Popular

Everyone loves cookies, right? At least everyone in my family.

I’ll let you in on a secret: I’d rather bake cookies than any other treats. I usually have all the ingredients on hand and it doesn’t take very long to whip up a batch of delicious cookies. 

And who doesn’t love a big scoop of cookie dough? I do! 

Plus, cookies are portable and come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors. A warm cookie and a glass of cold milk is the perfect snack and takes me back to my childhood days. 

Have you ever noticed how good the house smells when cookies are baking? 

I always have a list of favorite cookies that I bake during the holiday season. These Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies are always on the list, alongside my chocolate thumbprint cookies.

I’ve made butter cookies quite a few times, which are great plain. I love the idea of adding in the chocolate toffee bits too. I may have to make a batch of these for my neighbors.

These look so delicious. I love to bake a variety of cookies around the holidays so I always have goodies around for anyone that stops by.

Oh men, I wish I could receive a dozen of these cookies, or maybe three dozens. How fun to do this activity and for such a worthy cause, too. That is great that Land O’ Lakes was willing to match such a high amount of $$$.

These look so delicious! How can you eat just one?
