25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Toffee

There is something so addictive about toffee.  I am not sure if its the chocolate, or the caramel, but I am pretty sure it is the crunch! This recipe from DamnDelicious.net is easy and tastes delicious! I sprinkled sea salt flakes on half and I like it both with and without.  Toffee is the perfect treat to pack up in a tin to deliver to the neighbors!

25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Palmiers

Oh puff pastry…you’ve been holding out on me. I had no idea that such fancy cookies were so easy! Puff pastry is something that I keep in my freezer in case of emergency, like last minute appetizers. Now, I have Palmiers in my repertoire of recipes to make when I have friends coming over.

I originally thought of using a recipe with everything made from scratch, but if pre-made puff pastry is good enough for Ina…well it is certainly for me as well.  I used Ina Garten’s recipe on Food Network and the video was so helpful! I also took a liberty and made the second batch of Palmiers with cinnamon. BOTH are delicious!
