Best Oatmeal Toffee Cookie Recipe - DIY Guide

I tried really hard to come up with a good story to go along with this recipe, but I came up short. So instead of making something up, I will tell you the truth. My high school boyfriend really liked toffee cookies, so I tried a few different recipes until I found one that I liked. This was the result. That's it. It's a shame too, because these cookies deserve an exciting story. After all these years, the boyfriend is long gone but these cookies are still a regular in my kitchen. They are soft, chewy and crunchy all at the same time. The oatmeal cuts the sweetness that usually overpowers a toffee cookie and there is just enough cinnamon. So don't let the lame story fool you, these oatmeal toffee cookies are worth a try.
