Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Toffee Chocolate Oat Cookies

These cookies have a distinctive flavor and were a big hit at the beach.  I used Heath Toffee bits, bagged, from Hershey's as well as Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips.  If you cannot find Toffee Bits and/Or Milk Chocolate chips, you can purchase Heath or Skor bars and crush them.  If you use that route, you would need 3 cups + 4 ounces of crushed toffee bars.

  1 Cup Shortening                                                                     1/2 Tsp Salt
  2 Cups Flour                                                                            4 Ounce Milk Chocolate Chips
  1 Cup Sugar                                                                             2 Large Eggs
  1 Cup Brown Sugar                                                                 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  2.5 Cups Oatmeal                                                                    1 Tsp Baking Soda
  2 Bags Heath Chips                                                                 1 Tsp Almond Extract

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream the butter and sugars.  Add eggs and almond extract, set aside.  In a food processor, pulse the oatmeal until powdery.  In a bowl, stir together flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and soda.  Mix into the wet ingredients.  When blended, fold in chocolate chips and Heath pieces.  Bake for 10 minutes.
