Recipe by Shawn C
This recipe was found in a insert in the paper called American Profile and was made by a lady named Carolyn Hayes from Elba NY. A guy in our office makes these for us and they never last long. He did say that it takes a while to get them perfect. All I know is these are too good not to share. i made these using silicon baking sheets and the first batch took around 20 minutes the others around 19- watch them carefully adding 2 minutes at a time until the edges start turning brown. also beware that your spatula to remove will become encrusted with the toffee and harder to scoop off the cookies- scrape the spatula beteewn batches. these are still the best ever!
