Christmas Treats!

Well last night was baking night at the Wind's Here Casa (my parents house, we live at the top of a very windy mountain.) We made my favorite easy treat Toffee Cookies, and Peanut Patties!

Here is my recipe for Toffee Cookies:
1 sleeve of saltine crackers
1 cup of butter
1 cup of brown sugar packed
1-2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
any nuts you want!

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line the crackers on a cookie sheet that has a rim. In a saucepan melt 2 cups of butter careful not to burn it, then add brown sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Pour over crackers and bake for 5 min. As soon as it is out of the oven spread between 1 and 2 cups of chocolate chips, and spread as they melt. Sprinkle any kind of nuts you want over the top. Let it cool completely!

This is so easy and so yummy!!
