Christmas Crack: Saltine Toffee Cookies
Tomorrow I am meeting my high school girlfriends for our annual Christmas cookie exchange. I hadn't decided what I was going to bake, but when my baby was up at 3:30 am and then again at 6:00 am this morning- hello 9 month sleep regression- I knew I needed something easy and quick.
I decided to make this "Christmas Crack" introduced to me by my mother-in-law. They require only 4 ingredients and a few minutes to whip up, but WHOA MAMA! They are that good.
