I struggled with the title for this one. Toffee Bit? Toffee Bits Cookies? It just didn't roll off the tongue. I don't know. If you come up with something else, something even witty maybe, do let me know.
Alright, to get some perspective, I asked Dave, "If you could only have one kind of cookie ever again, would it be the toffee ones or peanut butter?" He looked at me, and said, "I have no idea! That's like asking you to choose what one flavor of water for the rest of your life!" LOL So he likes 'em. And he really likes pb, too.
I like them well enough. Oh! Make sure you leave at least an inch or so between each cookie, because they do spread as they 'relax' out of the oven.
