I came across this recipe in a magazine called Victoria many years ago. I lost that card but found the recipe again here. The original recipe called for sanding sugar to be sprinkled on the cookies before baking, thus giving them the "sparkle". I make these at Christmas and take them to work, everyone loves them and looks forward to them every year!!! I double the recipe and use the entire bag of toffee bits (the bits do not store well). I bake on Sil-Pat's and get about 8 dozen.

I just made a batch of these cookies for the very first time. I must say, they were absolutely delicious! My whole family enjoyed them very much. I used 1 cup of Heath Toffee Bits and lined my baking sheet with parchment paper, for easy clean-up. They were some of the easiest and tastiest cookies, I have ever made. This recipe is so wonderful and yummy, I hope everyone out there gives it a try. You won't be sorry!

Very Yummy ! I used the whole bag of skor toffee chips (1Cup) & I added color sugar (sprinkles) pink, blue, purple before going in the oven ;) --> Recipe Only made 40 at 1 inch balls then press.

Just made these cookies and they are incredible! I didn't have vanilla so substituted almond extract. Someone had given me some granulated maple sugar so I mixed that with the sugar to dip them in. These are definitely my new favorite! Got a bit more than 3 dozen but have to confess that I ate at least three cookies in dough before they hit the pan. Happy Baking!

I love this recipe! So glad to have fund it again! I lost it and kept searching for Reader's Digest recipes forgetting it was a Land o Lakes recipes. I too add more toffee and I too get just about 3 dozen out of the stated recipe. Well worth making more!

Amazing! I make these cookies every Christmas and my family loves them.

Yummy, simple but different.

I have been making these for years ever since I bought a Land O Lakes holiday cookie recipe book many moons ago. I do bake them on parchment paper though, as I have found them to stick to the sheets otherwise. Could be due to the added toffee chips I use though. Either way, this is a fabulous recipe.

I do like this recipe and I think I'll make it again, but with a couple of changes. After reading some reviews, I decided to use 3/4 cup of toffee bits but next time I guess I can use some more. But the amount of sugar (to cream with butter) will be decreased because the cookies are slightly too sweet for me. Overall, this is a great recipe. The cookies looked very beautiful with the sugar on the surfaces. They really sparkled. And like someone stated, I used the exact amounts of ingredients and made a little over 3 dozens cookies, not 5 dozens. This is the second recipe I tried from Landolakes.com and I'm becoming a fan. Many thanks.

I gave it a four star rating because I felt it needed more toffee bits. I made them again using 1 1/3 c. of toffee bits and that made them a five star cookie. The extra bits make them much more chewy and gives a greater toffee flavor. I found that after making them three times the recipe only made a little over three dozen and I was sure to make the balls one inch as the recipe stated.

They have a great buttery taste. In fact everyone loved them so much, today I am making my 3rd batch in 2 weeks. I give it 5 plus stars.

Rating

Awesome cookie! Loved by all! The edible sprinkles that look like glittery snow also look very pretty on this cookie. A friend suggested this & we have added this to the recipe.
