Fudge Toffee Cookies

It is officially the holiday season now that cookie baking has begun.This is our top favorite from all the years of Christmas cookies...my gift to you.


1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted
¾ cup sweetened condensed milk
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract

Mix until smooth and set aside.


½ cup (one stick) butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup confectioners’ sugar


½ cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Set aside. In another bowl, combine:

2¼ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cream of tartar

Add to creamed mixture. Stir in:

1½ cups toffee bits
⅔ cup chopped pecans

Shape into 1” balls and place on cookie sheet.  Make an indention in the center of each.  Spoon 1 teaspoon of filling into the center. Top each cookie with one of: 

1¼ cups pecan halves (optional)

Bake at 350˚ for 12-14 minutes.  Makes 5½ dozen.

Lucy just added to her credit card debt by purchasing this lovely knit dress for the holidays.  Her kind heart gets her in trouble in more ways than one. Not only is she always adopting some stray man, she thinks she needs to buy a gift for everyone she knows. You'd think she'd take a look at her father and realize even the best woman can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
