Delectably light, these Toffee Almond Shortbread Bites have a buttery flavor with an unexpected hint of almond and toffee. Be sure to bake a few of these cookies for each guest.

These are soooo good Annacia, I love toffee shorbread and these don't disappoint. I made these for a friends birthday and had to hide them from myself. I couldn't stop eating them. Good thing I doubled the recipe. I got 24 cookies per batch. These tiny shortbread bites are crisp and tender, flavourful and rich, just perfect. I didn't have any coloured coarse sugar so I sprinkled fine white sugar on half the cookies and toffee bits on the rest. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful crisp-tender cookies, and easy to make. I added a pinch of cinnamon. These will be on my holiday baking list from now on. Made for 1st Annual Holiday Tag Game. Thanks Annacia, this is a keeper!
