Buttery toffee-flecked cookies with a toffee-flecked buttercream filling...yum:) Interestingly enough, I got this recipe from a friend in my aerobics class--I'm assuming these cookies will be the reason both of us show up to class faithfully!!!

I had been thinking of these babies since I saw them on here a few days ago so I made them today!!!! So easy and tasty! The filling was decadent and I halved the recipe with no issue. Thanks for sharing!! :)
