Toffee and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last night we had our neighborhood summer picnic. Being that we are new to the neighborhood, we thought that it would be a good idea to go and meet some of our neighbors. It ended up being great fun, despite the miserable heat, and we got the chance to meet a lot of people. Everyone was asked to bring a dish and I thought that cookies might be a good thing to make since whatever I made would be sitting out in the ninety degree weather all evening. These cookies were quite the hit if I might say! Kids and adults seemed to gobble them up. This recipe will make about 45 cookies and when we left the party I would say that there were about 5 still on the plate. So if you like english toffee and chocolate chips then you are sure to love these cookies!
