Ginger-Toffee Cookies

If all goes well, I’ll have a few different recipes today. So far, I just have one, and it happens to be something I mentioned a few months ago – Ginger-Toffee Cookies, made with Bits o’ Brickle.  

Ginger-Toffee Cookies

Brickle is not one of my favorite ingredients because I hate things that stick to my teeth. Luckily, in this recipe, they aren’t too sticky. They just add a nice crunch to a flavorful and spicy cookie.

Notes
For an even nicer shape you can use 1/4 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter in place of the 3/4 cup butter.

    I made these cookies last week! They are delicious and I got lots of compliments. I will definitely make them again. I may go with 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening and add cayenne the next time just to try it differently. This recipe is a keeper!
    I love this website! My friend told me about it recently! Keep up the good work!

    These cookies are awesome! I have been making them nonstop! I double the recipe and freeze the cookies. They last several months in the freezer and taste yummy frozen.
    I submitted this recipe to the Houston Chronicle Holiday Cookie challenge in November 2009. It was selected as one of the top 12 cookie recipes from 125 submitted as a Holiday Cookie favorite. The recipe was in the December 9th, 2009 food section in the Roll with the Dough article. When I submitted the recipe I did give credit to Cookie Madness as the source of the recipe. Thanks for posting such wonderful recipes!
