Toffee Shortbread Cookies (Updated Recipe)
Recipe by Dragon

These lovely cookies are always a favourite around my home especially over the holidays. They melt in your mouth and are not too sweet. I love giving these cookies away as gifts to my friends and family. Enjoy!

Makes 3 dozen

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1  teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup toffee bits (I use Hershey's Chipits Skor Toffee Bits)

1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

2. Cream the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.

3. Sift the cornstarch, salt and flour together. Add flour mix to the creamed butter and sugar and thoroughly combine but don't over mix. Stir  in the toffee bits.

4. Scoop dough and shape into 1 inch balls. Place the balls 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or just until set and the bottoms begin to turn a light golden brown. If baking 2 trays at a time, rotate the trays halfway through. Cool cookies on the tray for 2 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
