Toffee Almond Joy Cookie

I’d take a cookie over a candy bar any day. Espe­cially a cookie that tastes like a candy bar.

Well, bet­ter than a candy bar, because it’s a cookie. You see what I’m saying?

These are an espe­cially good cookie to drink with a glass of milk.

I think the next time I make these I’ll dip half the cook­ies into some really good chocolate.

And then milk.

I can’t wait.
