    I have a soft brown sugar cookie recipe that uses both cornstarch and maple extract in it love it! I bet the toffee adds even more butteriness I love this flavor profile and so many of my fave cookies are in this family . Throw in some molasses and I m even better You had me at toffee, then I saw the cookies, and they look extraordinary! I had no idea Grren Black s had a toffee bar. I would love that. Who needs pancakes for breakfast when we can have a stack of these?!


    I have wanted to know how to make this for years. Here in the uk we have quot;Crunchie quot; bars of this covered in chocolate, but my favourite is to be found in traditional sweet shops, it comes in jars and is called quot;Cinder toffee quot;. This too is available covered in chocolate. I am so going to have to make a huge batch, in the interests of science of course and nothing at all to do with having a massive binge on candy goodness. lol.
