My contribution this year is Snickerdoodles – my absolute all time favorite cookie, kicked up a notch. They’ve got chocolate and toffee bits scattered throughout. Enough said.

Toffee Speckled Snickerdoodles
Makes 60 cookies
Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

• 3 tablespoons sugar

• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
• 1/2 cup shortening
• 2 eggs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix the 1 cup sugar, butter, shortening, and eggs.  Beat in the dry ingredients. Fold in the toffee bits.
