We went to Dallas last week and went to our favorite mall, NorthPark. We had to make the obligatory stop at Starbucks, because shopping is always better when you are caffeinated.
They offered these toffeedoodles and Ethan fell in love with them. I immediately responded that I could EASILY make those.
So here we are with some delicious cookies. I took these cookies to a party and they were gone within an hour.
Have toffeedoodles been around forever and we are just now finding out about them? They are delicious and I don’t see a reason for regular snickerdoodles to be around anymore.
