I would like to first point out that I LOVE food blogs. Especially ones that deal with baking, since I tend to think of myself as more of a 'baker' than 'cook'. I have found a couple of really good food blogs and have started to give some of the recipes a try.
I saw a recipe on the Tasty Kitchen Blog for Toffee Crunch Cookies. I almost skipped over the recipe because I really don't work with toffee that much. But I stopped and read it, and realized that this cookie doesn't have toffee in it at all. After making the cookie I realized that the ingredients help to create the texture and flavors of toffee.
There are a good many ingredients: Butter, Sugar, Brown Sugar, Eggs, Vanilla, Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt, quick cooking Oats, Rice Krispies, Marshmellows, and Chocolate Chips.
So ... you cream your butter and sugars together. Beat in your eggs. Add the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt). Then gently fold in the oats, krispies, marshmellows, and chocolate chips.

And after they are baked ... yummy!!!
These cookies are really awesome! I love the texture the oats and krispies add to it. I am definitely going to add these to my cookie arsenal.
Now all I need is to find a cookie swap party that I can make these for! Hopefully that will be another post!
