I made amazing Milk Chocolate Toffee Cookies.
I could stop this post right there because that is a nearly perfect sentence. It’s got a subject and a predicate. As a bonus it contains the word toffee, and of course the word amazing. What else does good writing require?
Like awesome before it, amazing has become a silly word. However, I use it here because I don’t have much of a sweet tooth and toffee is probably the only sweet thing I simply cannot pass by. Every other sweet treat you can think of I could either eat or not eat. Even chocolate. See how amazed you are?
What makes toffee truly memorable (err… amazing) to me is the complex, difficult to describe way that the butter and sugar cook past the point of sweetness into darker territory. I’m not saying toffee is bitter. But it certainly carries the slightest suggestion of sinister intent. I think that’s what I like about it so much.
However, cookies are a different story. Few sweets satisfy quite so many people as a perfectly baked cookie. Everyone loves them. They seem so sweetly innocent, with none of the dark mystery that I love about toffee. I like cookies too, but I’m persnickety about the texture. For me, the ideal cookie has a crumb that’s crisp and slightly caramelized on the outside, with a chewy, yet not raw, interior. The sweetness should be balanced with just a hint of salt.

Which is why I like these Milk Chocolate Toffee Cookies so much. They have the texture of my perfect cookie and the dark mystery of toffee. These Milk Chocolate Toffee Cookies are chewy, sticky and rich. I don’t think I need to say anything more amazing than that. GREG
