Toffee Cookie Squares

Toffee Cookie Squares

These cookies are the absolute best (especially during Christmas time)! As long as I can remember, my mother would make these cookies and they have become a yearly tradition to enjoy. My favorite part of this cookie is the shortbread  like chewy cookie with chocolate on top. It is the perfect duo and the taste is incredible.
